The 29th annual Rare Breeds Livestock Show will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, May 17, at Garfield Farm Museum in Campton Hills. Much of the traditional and iconic images of America are rapidly changing or disappearing. For many Americans, a farm is animals and pastures, barns and a generational family home, crops and fields, families and neighbors bound by common experience of working the land, where nature often calls the shots and work is hard. Yet that image today most likely exists on small farms that strive to produce organic or local foods often started by first time farmers.
