Wayne County 4-H
Each summer, Pingree Farms runs a program for Detroit students who want to learn about raising, training and grooming a variety of farm animals. One of the goals of the program is to make it possible for these students to exhibit their animals at the Wayne County Fair which takes place each August. Most of our students do not have the means to cover all the expenses involved in raising and exhibiting farm animals. To make it possible for these kids to get to Fair, we need your help.
Please partner with us to send a student to the Wayne County Fair by making a tax-deductible contribution today!
