I just returned from a wonderful ‘vacation’ at the Ohio State Fair. My future in-laws show hogs at the state fair which happens to occur during their home county fair – not exactly an ideal situation. So, I go and help out with the hogs and try to stay out of the way in Columbus while their father holds down the fort at the Wood County Fair.
My first day in Columbus I wandered the fairgrounds for awhile looking at the exhibits and resisting the fried food stands. I was pleasantly surprised at the number of consumer education booths I kept encountering. In almost every building I entered, there was a booth or display that provided consumers a first hand view at how Ohio produces a safe, wholesome food supply. Take a look at what I found in the swine barn – there were four viewboxes set up to show fair-goer’s how hogs are cared for on a farm.
Until next time,
