A trip through Bulloch County back roads to a remote farm, a visit to a fertilizer company and a stop at a small local grist, cane and sawmill was followed by lunch and a display of tractors Thursday as the Statesboro Kiwanis Club and Statesboro-Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce combined their annual farm tours for the first time. Club members and other interested parties gathered Thursday morning at the Kiwanis fairgrounds to board buses for the tour. Members of local FFA chapters also attended.
