4-Hers qualify for state fair

-A A +A

4-H winners at the Carroll County were Jessica Foster with three art entries, Haley Hendrick with two photography entries, Tristan Louden with five entries in the crafts area and Haley Tharp with a ceramics and weaving project.


All of these youth will be going to the Kentucky State Fair with their entries. Haley Tharp also had a sewing entry, but did not qualify for state.

In the livestock section, it was a very hot evening and our beef kids had a state show this past weekend so they decided not to come out with the heat.

Tristan Louden had the champion duck, chicken and rabbit entries.

Ryan Cain had the grand champion goat and Cassidy Buchanan had the reserve champion goat.

Congratulations to all the 4-Hers.

Farm Field Day

There will be a Farm Field Day Tuesday, July 12, at the Bob Luckhardt Farm on Pardue Road in Ghent.

The day will begin at 6 a.m. and end with a twilight meal. Topics will be seeding techniques, restoring high traffic areas, warm season grasses, stockpiling pastures, watering systems, dead animal composting and using one of the no-till drills.

RiverView Farmers Market

The RiverView Farmers Market will be open from 2-5 p.m. Wednesday’s on the Courthouse square and beginning at 8 a.m. Saturdays at Hometown Pizza. The market will have some cole crops, eggs, hanging baskets, flowers, crafts and jams and jellies.

Tomatoes are not too far away and some of the small fruits will be coming on soon. The market is again accepting WIC and Senior Citizen Coupons.

4-H Camp

Carroll County will be going to 4-H Camp July 18-21 this year.

The camp fee this year is $165 and it must be paid before leaving for camp. I have been telling the kids that we will work with parents if they need to pay in installments for camp.

Your space is not held unless you have paid for camp. Applications are currently available at the Extension Office which is located at 500 Floyd Drive. We are by the fairgrounds behind Walmart and Kroger.
