The Roeder Summer Auction had everything imaginable that could be used on the farm. There were approximately 450 items up for auction, and there were as many or more people there at the auction ready to buy.
Lunch was served at Cundiff Farms and catered by Rutland BBQ. Performing was the 2014 WKDZ Country Showdown Winner, Luk Nichols. The food and music were great and the weather was fantastic. Everyone enjoyed the food and fellowship and the Farm Tour was a huge success.
Steve & Denice Brashears of Black Patch Farms hosted the final stop of the Farm Tour. Steve talked about their tobacco operation while Denise touched on the duties of their family members in the operation. She commented that it takes everyone working together as a family to keep the family farm running.
The first stop on the Farm Tour 2014 was at Jolly Farms where we learned about the cattle operation and how silage was chopped and used for the cattle operation. Cutting silage is not as common as it once was, but Jolly Farms puts it to good use on their farm.
