Come and enjoy the largest pure food exhibit in the country!
Come and see thousands of produce varieties! Dozens of garden and agricultural exhibits are slated for the 2013 Exposition. Mac Condill of The Great Pumpkin Patch and Homestead Seeds will again bring an incredible collection of pumpkins, squash and gourds for the massive display. We are also proud to have our Giant Pumpkin contest affiliated with the Great Pumpkin Commonwealth, who will sanction the weigh-off. Last year we had pumpkins approaching 1,400 pounds!
Thousands of varieties of produce will be on exhibit, and many will also be judged and awarded prizes of cash and/or ribbons. We encourage growers to bring their biggest, prettiest, and tastiest tomatoes for display. Watermelons and other vegetable types will be categorized according to entries received. We will have categories for displaying every type of heirloom vegetable imaginable: eggplant, radish, onion, squash, cabbage, cucumber, garlic, beans and many more.
Many fruit categories will be displayed and possibly judged: apples, pears, berries, etc., as well as tropical and citrus fruits. California Rare Fruit Growers will exhibit rare fruit varieties. Other categories will include nuts, herbs, eggs, mushrooms, and whatever else you may grow. Kitchen arts include various categories such as honey, maple syrup, sorghum syrup, eggs, jams and jellies, pickles and preserves, olive oil, baked goods and miscellaneous other categories to be displayed and judged if participation warrants it.
We will have various categories for non-edibles. Bring your flowers and floral arrangements; old time tools, memorabilia, or machinery. Many types of art, including paintings, crafts, quilts, jewelry, photography, and many more will be displayed.
Don’t forget the hundreds of historic poultry that will be exhibited and judged, as well as the livestock exhibits and contests that will include many historic, heritage and pure breeds.
