We focus on Farm Shows & Events because if you tend to a farmer well, you will: Watch Hope Grow
Farmers across the US, Canada, and in New Zealand may have no idea how much support they could have in a moment’s notice. When trouble hits, without any support, it’s easy to feel isolated, alone, and helpless. No one who works as hard as a farmer deserves to ever be stranded without Hope.
We offer support to farmers across the US, Canada, and New Zealand when they need it most by turning Compassion into Action.
Sometimes “support” looks like rebuilding fences or cleaning barns. It may look like a friendly conversation or introducing them to a new friend who also knows what life’s like on the farm. Many times, it’s getting on our knees and praying for God to come rescue the sick, the lost, and the hurting.
We believe, “If you tend to a farmer well, you will watch Hope grow.”
We’re looking for volunteers who are ready to:
1 Bring Jesus
We cannot bring lasting Hope if we do not trust the Master of Hope, Jesus.
2 Bring Work Gloves
Love requires action. We put in real time and effort and are not afraid to get messy.
3 Bring “The Farm”
We give all we’ve got and make every effort to relate to life on a farm.
Volunteers can expect to do these every day:
1 Pray for Others
Partner with what God is already doing in another’s life.
2 Lend a Hand
Be ready to pitch in wherever help is needed most.
3 Be a Friend
Smile, listen, and genuinely care for the one in front of you.
Farm Progress Show 2021
After the cancelled show in 2020, the Farm Progress Show is back for 2021 in Decatur, Illinois. The show was Tuesday, August 31 through Thursday, September 2, 2021. The Fellowship of Christian Farmers had a large tent on the south end of the show grounds. Weather for the 3 day show was about as good as it gets in central Illinois in late August, with temps in the upper 70s.
Walworth County Fair, Elkhorn, Wisconsin
The 172nd Walworth County Fair took place September 1 through the 6th at the county fairgrounds in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. This year’s theme was “Jam-Packed Fun in 2021!” This is a very popular and well attended fair, second only to the state fair.
