  1. 4-H- A FAMILY TRADITION

    Oct. 02, 2019

    The Jones Family is all in with 4-H!  Twins Makala and Abigayle and brother Ethan have successfully shown market pigs, goats, lambs and steers for what seems like most of their lives.  They come by this naturally as their Mother and Grandmother were both 4-H’ers too!  Here are a few quotes from our 4-H’ers.

    “There is so much to learn (raising animals) and watching them grow is amazing.”

    “4-H means … hard work, life lessons and responsibility.”  “4-H is basically my way of life… .”   

    “It is my way of helping out our communities.”

  2. 4-H- A FAMILY TRADITION

    Oct. 02, 2019

    My 4-H journey began the summer of fourth grade with an end of the fair week sale of an obese, spunky, nippy, black Mini Rex Rabbit. The condition my parents gave me for getting the rabbit was that I had to join 4-H. I eagerly began attending meetings and ever since then I have lived by the motto “To Make the Best Better”. My pet rabbit project turned into breeding rabbit projects along with a cavy project. I remained in the program until I was 19.

  3. 4-H- A FAMILY TRADITION

    Oct. 02, 2019

    For the Jenkins family 4-H means family memories to us! Our family started 4-H when my youngest two children were only Cloverbuds. As my children grew, they also grew in their passion for 4-H and evolved in their project interests as well.  They tried all kinds of projects such as sewing, cooking, photography, market chickens, and goats but it was shooting sports where they found their real interest. When they aged out of 4-H they still wanted to be a part of it in some way and give back.

  6. Summit and Portage to offer Annie's Project

    Sep. 05, 2018

    We are partnering with  Portage County to offer Annie’s Project.  Annie’s project is a six-week program designed to address risk management education for farm women. Its objective is to educate women entrepreneurs so that they are more prepared to make farm management decisions. While a large number of farm women own and operate farms, others play a major role in the decision-making process of farm operations for farm families. Annie’s Project provides in-depth sessions on topics that are important for decision-making of the family farm.
