Farm living was the life for about 350 area youngsters Friday, who spent the better part of the day immersed in an environment of tractors, livestock and produce. For the second consecutive year, the Statesboro-Bulloch Chamber of Commerce’s Agribusiness Committee — with help from Ogeechee Technical College, AgSouth, Keep Bulloch Beautiful, Farmers and Merchants Bank and the Kiwanis Club — invited area children taking part in local summer camps to get a frontline, hands-on introduction to the importance of agriculture in Bulloch County and the region. Campers with the Statesboro-Bulloch Parks and Recreation Department and the Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch County made their way to the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fairgrounds for the committee’s second annual Farm Day.
