Four area farms will be featured through the Ross County Farm Bureau's July 14 event.
Local farms will be featured as part of this year's "Farm Factor" Ross County Farm Bureau Progressive Farm Dinner on Sunday, July 14.
Farm Bureau President Mark Crosier said it's a chance to learn about agriculture: "A lot of people are kind of apprehensive about farmers, agriculture, and stuff, and we kind of want to show people that we're normal; we just like to live in the country, work long hours, and get dirty."
The event takes you on a tour of four Ross County farms. At each stop, a course of the dinner is served, and you will not know where you are going next until you get to each location, which starts at Hiser Seeds in Clarksburg.
"One of the farms is one of the oldest farms in the Northwest Territory, and it has been continuously owned by someone in the same family since 1796," said Crosier.
Tickets are $15 for Farm Bureau members and $20 for non-members; they are available at the offices of Nationwide Insurance agents Joel Gerber and John Wilber or by calling the Farm Bureau office at (740) 474-6284.
