Exhibitor Information - Agriculture
In the early years of the Marshfield Fair, farmers gathered to compare their livestock and produce. The wives often brought along their flowers and baked goods. These were compared as well. After World War II with the availability of motorized vehicles, large farms were able to bring more of their produce for competitions. Over the years the number of farms in the northeast has deceased greatly. Today’s agricultural displays consist more of the crops grown in backyard patches than in large farms but the competition is still intense!
Bring your produce down and compete against other local growers! Come down and see what your neighbors are growing! Or just stroll through the agricultural department and enjoy our fruit and vegetable displays, canning and egg displays and our many exhibits.
In honor of our 150th anniversary and to encourage our local farmers to become involved in the fair, the Agriculture Department of the
Marshfield Fair will honor the Commercial Farmer who wins the most blue ribbons in our market basket classes with a prize of $150.
