Service Animals

Just a friendly reminder to those attending our events. Pets and comfort/therapy animals are not welcome at any of our events and we do stop everyone entering with a dog and confirm they truly are a legal service dog.

Biosecurity at our Fall Event

We would like to remind everyone attending our Fall Poultry and Homesteading Faire of these very important things. ONE, use our Sanitation Stations set up outside each of the two entrances to the Arena. Use them when you enter and when you leave. Poultry diseases are spread on shoes and clothing - even hair - so using our stations will greatly reduce the chance of you bringing something to our event as well as taking something home with you. Use the hand sanitizer provided by vendors and OPS Inc. often! TWO, change your clothes and shoes before coming to our event and upon returning home. Again, diseases are spread on clothing and shoes. And THREE, quarantine all animals you purchase at our event. The recommended time is 30 days. Have a plan and make sure you follow through with it. Report any issues that may arise to the seller, OPS Inc and the ODA if necessary. We are starting our 4th year "clean" so you can see that we take the safety and health of our events very seriously. Please do your part and take responsibility for keeping our events and everyone's flocks and herds healthy!

Benton County Fairgrounds Reader Board Photo Contest Winner!

We would like to Congratulate Chris Ricard and Nicole Champagne of Celestial Farms for the winning photo that will be displayed on the reader board at the fairgrounds announcing our Fall event!! The board had such a hard time choosing a photo - there were so many awesome pictures - that we had our interns choose. Yep, we copped out lol...but we feel they made a great choice! All the photos submitted will be on display in the arena so be sure you stop by and see how hard the decision truly was! Thank you to everyone who entered - it was fun!
