Thank You

The NW Washington Fairgrounds was bustling this last Saturday as around 400 people enjoyed the 6th annual Whatcom Farm Expo in the new Farm Pavilion Building. Over 40 exhibitors demonstrated the latest agricultural innovations, products, and services. After two years of virtual content, the opportunity to meet in person was celebrated. Even though it was one of few sunny days in April, farmers left their fields to network and learn about local resources in the community! Visitors engaged with exhibitors and other farmers over new resources to improve and expand crop productivity, animal health, pasture quality, and homesteading happiness.
