Benton County Farm Bureau provided a little bit of fun and information about Benton County agriculture to hundreds of people at the Bentonville Farmer's Market this past Saturday.
Basically, we were marketing farming.
Consumers of all ages enjoyed the beauty of this antique tractor and a lot of
tractor talking from Benton County farmer Bob Shofner,
milking the cow that never goes dry,
petting the chicks.
It's not a hard job to market farming because
we have a great story to communicate at every opportunity.
It's obvious that the look of the family farm and the technologies
have changed but we have the same values of caring for the land
and the animals to provide safe,healthy food for America's consumers.
