The public is invited to this Kane County Farm Bureau event. Admission is free.

Kids can sit in the seat of an antique tractor, see modern farm equipment, participate in hands-on activities, ride pedal tractors, shell corn, see farm animals and enter for a free chance to win their very own pedal tractor. As part of the Harvest for ALL hunger relief effort, bringing nonperishable food items to the event earns visitors an extra entry in the pedal tractor drawing and will be donated to a local food pantry. Refreshments will be offered to help raise funds for the KCFB Foundation.

As part of Kane County Farm Bureau's 100-year celebration, the annual community service event will feature award-winning professional chain-saw carver Michael Bihlmaier of Marengo who will create another custom sculpture on the Farm Bureau lawn to celebrate 100 years in the community.

The public will get its first look at the grand prize in the 2013 Winner's Choice Raffle -- a 1921 Ford Model T "Huckster" Produce Truck. The first-prize winner will choose from this classic farm vehicle, or a John Deere lawn mower, or $5,000 in cash. Second prize is $1,000 in groceries and third prize is $500 in fuel. Other prize packages include frozen food and farm fun. Tickets are $15 each, two for $25 and five for $50. The Winners Choice Raffle is the primary fundraiser for KCFB Foundation college scholarships. Scholarship recipients for 2013 will be announced at a ceremony Sunday, April 7.
