Just a reminder the Indiana State Fair is about to start!!!!
After waiting 348 days since the last one, I'm happy to announce that the Great Indiana State Fair starts this Friday, August 6th and runs through Sunday, August 22nd. This years theme is the "year of the pigs" which is very appropriate as Indiana ranks 5th in the nation for pork production and contributes $3 billion to Indiana's economy annually.
While you are at the fair be sure to stop by the hog barn and check out the worlds largest boar as well as the champion litter. (That's a female hog and her piglets, they are super cute and you won't want to miss it!) You'll also want to eat a Garbage Burger, which is the signature food item for this years fair and consists of a porkbuger with pulled pork BBQ on top. I think that sounds delish and can't wait to try it. So come on out and see Indiana's Agriculture on show case!!!
