Farmers from across the East Coast are flocking to Fishersville for the Virginia Farm Show, which began Tuesday. It is being held at Augusta Expo Land.
Full-time and part-time farmers are attending. Two buildings and heated tents house exhibits for major lines of equipment and services and there will also be a skid steer rodeo in which people can participate.
"One of the things that a farm show gives the farmers is an opportunity to really come out and look at a lot of different things," says Steven Sarson, a regional sales manager from Kentucky. "Everything from a new tractor to some fence products to cattle handling equipment; there's a lot of opportunity for them to see a little bit of everything."
The show continues on Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and again on Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
