We, as an agricultural society, have a mandate to promote and be advocates of agricultural practices to these communities and cities, assisting the public to better understand where their food comes from. Food does not grow among the aisles of the grocery stores, nor do livestock graze the vast concrete jungles, as some may think.
In and around Erin we are blessed with rolling hills smothered in fields of golden grains swaying in the breeze and green pastures streaming with new life and grazing livestock. Majestic bank barns which the sun rises and sets over every day, symbolizing the long tradition of the family farm.
Family farms are the founding part of our community in which over the years locally grown crops and livestock that have been produced. Great pride was put into every seed that is sown, every animal that was nurtured and every product that was produced to sell. The fair is the one place where local farmers and producers can come to showcase their products and animals. It’s a place where the stage is set for competition of bragging rights and is also a place where the farm can come to life in an urban environment. Allowing people the opportunity to pause and reflect on this timely tradition.
Traditions have come and gone just as years have come and gone. Over the past 150 years we have celebrated the great tradition we call Canada. Let’s keep this tradition alive by coming together to celebrate the long tradition of agriculture at the 167th edition of the Erin Fall Fair. Just as Thanksgiving is a tradition to most, come make the Erin Fall Fair your family tradition.
