Barnyard Adventure is an area at the Walworth County Fair where children can experience the workings of the Farm. Children pick apples, gather eggs, milk our Helene the Holstein, drive a tractor, and harvest vegetables in our garden.
This area is Free to the public and is run on mainly donations and volunteers. Our Barnyard Adventure has won numerous awards from the International Association of Fairs and Expos (IAFE), the umbrella fair organization of all fairs across the country, for the Best Agricultural Event for our size of Fairs. We also went on to win “Best of Division” competing against fairs in the nation.
Barnyard Adventure requires the help of many, many volunteers to help guide the children and their families through the various stations of “From Seed to Supper.” The job of the volunteer is to help the little farmers maximize their experience by making sure that each simple step is completed.
The wonderful thing about volunteering is before or after the short shift, the volunteers are able to enjoy the Fair on our admission ticket! Also, each volunteer will receive a “Barnyard Adventure” T-shirt and food coupon.
