Dear Friends of Massachusetts Agriculture: 

All over the Massachusetts countryside, farmers, their neighbors 
and their city friends are ready for another exciting and educational 
season of agricultural fairs, exhibits and shows. 

It's all part of the celebration of the great diversity, 
innovation and tradition which characterizes Massachusetts agriculture 
in the 1980s. 

In that spirit, I join the members of the state's agriculture and 
horticultural societies in welcoming you to attend the nearly 100 events 
scheduled on the 1987 Massachusetts Agricultural Fairs calendar. 

Members of our agricultural youth organizations - 4-H, the Future 
Farmers of America and the Junior Granges - will share with you all they 
have learned about the art and the love of farming. 

There is something for everyone. Our country fairs provide you and 
your fatnilies with an opportunity to see agriculture in action, to 
appreciate the works of artisans and craftspeople and experience the 
vitality of rural Massachusetts. 

All in all, a visit to one or more of our agricultural events this 
season, promises to be a meaningful an^i::^joyable family outing. 

See you at the fairgrounds
