If you attended last week’s Christian County Fair in Taylorville, chances are you received an educational experience while visiting the Christian County Farm Bureau’s Interactive Farm located next to the Christian County Fair Expo Building.
University of Illinois Extension of Christian County ag educator Ann Lupton says that for those kids who aren’t familiar with farming, the Interactive Farm is a great way to see some of the animals that are grown on local farms in Christian County.
