Farm Day at the Nevada County Fairgrounds

We’re excited for the 3rd Annual Farm Day, happening on Thursday at the Fairgrounds! We’ll have almost 700 kids from area schools on the grounds to learn about agriculture in Nevada County, meet lots of animals, and, of course, meet some draft horses. Thank you to the Nevada County Resource Conservation District, the Nevada County Farm Bureau, and Bear River & Nevada Union FFA students for making this day possible!
