Mercer County 4-H Fair at Howell Farm

This Saturday and Sunday is the Mercer County 4-H Fair at Howell Living History Farm.

4 H did you know

There are so many activities throughout the day — sheep sheering, animal costume contest, magic show, goat milking contests — you name it! Plus pony rides and hay rides and crafts. The schedule for the 2-day fair is available online. The website also mentions something about chicken poop bingo being near a dunk tank. Only in Mercer County!?! You need to check it out.

What is 4-H? 4-H is an informal educational program for youth run by volunteers through the Rutger’s Cooperative Extension of Mercer County that receives funds from a cooperative partnership of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Insitute of Food and Agriculture, the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station of Rutgers University of New Jersey, and the county Board of Chosen Freeholders, plus some support from private sources. It isn’t just for kids on farms but for all youth.
