First Farm Friday

We hope you will join us on Main Street in Coshocton for First FARM Friday on August 2. The goal of First FARM Friday is to educate the public about the importance of agriculture in our community and beyond. Visit one of our many displays, climb into farm machinery, and get up close to farm animals. Bring the kids to complete a stamp card and receive a free cup of custard from Whit’s Frozen Custard. Food will be available for purchase from vendors at the event.

Do you have a question for a local farmer? At First FARM Friday, you can talk to the men and women of Coshocton County agriculture. All of the presenters at the event volunteer their time to educate the community about Coshocton County’s number one industry. First FARM Friday was organized to be a fun, educational event that helps the general public understand the importance of agriculture in our community and beyond.
