Success at the 4-H Fairs

The Pingree Farms 4-H students did a fantastic job at the Oakland and Wayne county fairs this year. Thank you to all the parents and Pingree Farms friends who supported the students so they could be part of Pingree Farms 4H team. And congratulations to ALL the participating students! Good work!

“Let us not forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most
important labor of man. When tillage begins, other arts will
follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization.”
– Daniel Webster

“I have been involved with Pingree Farms from the beginning and it is amazing to watch the farm grow and change over the years. The Green family has created a wonderful place that encourages teamwork and fun. Taking part in P.I.G. (Plants In the Ground) each spring has become a family event that we look forward to each year.”

“Pingree Farms is so much fun! I was surprised to find out that there was a real farm in the city. I loved all the animals, especially the miniature cows. We fed them bread and their tongues are really long! The chicken smell pretty bad but they are fun to watch and I got to get an egg from a nest. The pigs are huge and kind of loud. The best part was when Cowboy Will let me take a turn riding a horse! I can’t wait to go back!”

“With all the problems in Detroit it is wonderful to see some people looking for solutions. Pingree Farms is working with schools, 4-H groups and other local organizations to bring opportunities to students from the city and the surrounding communities. Students can come and learn about how to work together, problem solve, take care of animals, plant and harvest food and so much more. I think what these people have done is incredible and I look forward to working with them more.”
