CONNOQUENESSING TWP — There was down-on-the-farm family fun Saturday during the annual Butler County Farm Tour.
But there was more to the tour than just amusement and entertainment. It was about education, too.
“The Farm Tour is an important thing, it gives people an idea of where their food comes from,” said Ken Metrick, owner of Metrick's Harvest View Farm & Market.
“Agriculture is the No. 1 industry in Pennsylvania,” he added. “We need promote that to the people.”
His was one of three farms on this year's tour, sponsored by the Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau.
Other participants were West Park Alpacas in Worth Township and North Country Brewing Company's Growing Together Aquaponics in Slippery Rock Township.
