All proceeds benefit the non-profit organization  Heifer International
It is a non-profit organization started over 65 years ago to help fight hunger and poverty.  They provide livestock for families in need.  These animals provide eggs, wool, milk, meat, and even draft power!
After a family’s “gift animal” bears a female offspring then it is given to a neighbor in need.  This “passing on the gift” helps families gain confidence and dignity by helping others in need.
Heifer International is in over 125 countries and has many projects in the United States! 
Please visit their website at to learn more.

In lieu of an admission fee we are asking that visitors please bring items that can be donated to two local assistance groups.  The Richwood Emergency Assistance Program (REAP) and the North Union Personal Needs Pantry/Free Shop are both running low on items for families in need. 

Donations can be given to gate greeters as you enter the fairgrounds.

Thank ewe!
