It’s That Time Again…Going to Your County Fair!
Some of my most vivid memories as a kid growing up in Baldwin County were of going to the county fair. I look forward to going every year. There is something reassuring about going to the fair that no matter how the world changes, every year about this time there will always be a celebration of the bounty of our land; 2016 is no exception.
The nearly 600,000 Alabama farmers, foresters and agribusiness workers are responsible for contributing over $70 billion a year to our state’s economy. They are the backbone of our economy, working hard every day to help feed and clothe the world.
Please take this opportunity while you are at the fair to visit the exhibits and learn as much as you can about the livestock, local foods, and those who produce them. Experience all of it, as these events are about where we live and the people who work to make the fairs so successful.
As your Commissioner of Agriculture & Industries, I am honored to be a part of our Alabama county fairs and being with fellow Alabamians who support them. You and your family, as a result of attending and supporting your county fair, are a part of an incredible resource.
The employees of the Alabama Department of Agriculture & Industries send best wishes to all who make our county fairs a success each year. Thank you for your continued support for Alabama farmers, foresters, and agribusiness!
