Ashtabula Ag Day is the county's youth agricultural education event. This year, every first grader in Ashtabula County was invited to attend Ag Day 2019 on Friday, May 10th. On that Friday, there were around 1,025 students of the class of 2030, consisting of 52 different classrooms, in attendance for this year’s event, located at the Ashtabula County Fairgrounds. This program was sponsored by OSU Extension and the Ashtabula County Farm Bureau with the goal of educating first graders on where their food comes from and to showcase all the different types of agricultural commodities which are being grown in Ashtabula County. We are already planning for next year’s event. We are looking for committee members to serve on the 2019 planning committee. We are excited on how this program helps open the agriculture world to our county’s youth! If you are interested in helping or donating to next year’s program, please contact Abbey Averill at 440-576-9008. Royalty Free Music from Bensound
