FARM BOOTHS NEAR YOUR ANIMALS AT THE FESTIVAL
FARM BOOTH GUIDELINES
The philosophy of the farm booth option is to allow animal exhibitors the opportunity to sell items produced on their farms while still being close to their animals. Only items produced on an exhibitor’s farm will be allowed. Commercial processing of their fiber is allowed such as roving made from their animals’ fiber, yarn spun from their own fiber, or felted batts from their own fiber. Fiber related products produced on their farm such as soaps you make, drop spindles you make, or farm gates you make are allowed. See the list below for other guidelines. Because a farm may be exhibiting animals someone else may staff the booth or it may be closed off during that period of time.
Farms participating must have at least one of their own animals present. They must have purchased at least one animal pen and have at least one animal that they own registered for exhibit or show.
Farm booths will be allotted on a first come basis due to space limitations. A farm booth is not guaranteed. We will notify you by 7/15/2019 of your acceptance status.
Table or full booth spaces may be shared by two or more farms.
Assignments will be received after your animal(s) have been checked in. Early set up is available on Thursday by appointment with your species Chairperson. Animals must be checked in by the species Chairperson before being lodged in a pen or stall.
Booths may be open from the time the animals are checked in to the time they leave, during normal vendor hours, Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday. (Note: Booths may vary in amount of time they will be open.)
