Working with Skagit Farmers Supply, North Cascades Meat Producers Cooperative, and the Puget Sound Food Hub Farmers Cooperative, NABC organized the second annual Farmers Cooperative Day at the Skagit County Fair on Saturday, August 12. Many fun activities were shared including NABC’s Cooperative and Agriculture Jeopardy, Skagit Farmers Supply’s Wheel of Prizes, and samples of Bow Hill Blueberries ice cream and Myshan Dairy’s fabulous Guernsey milk.
NABC and the North Cascades Meat Producers Cooperative provided revolving slideshows sharing stories of cooperative development and how farmers working together are able to access new markets. NABC also had its Mobile Poultry Processing Unit on site and conducted more than a dozen tours and provided product samples of Scratch and Peck Feeds fine poultry feed products. A fun time was had by all!
