August 8, 2015 was the day this year for the annual Chilton Research & Extension Center’s FARM, HOME, & WILDLIFE EXPO, and what a day it was! There was a great crowd this year with many exhibits, cooking demonstrations, and fruit and ice cream samples. The EXPO is all about educating people in the skills of farming, raising animals, growing vegetables and fruits and then preserving and canning the bounty. There was a goat show, farm dogs, a miniature heifer, chickens, honeybees, and an eagle display. We had our plant sale there and did very well with it. As always, our members were a big help with the registration process, the sampling of fruit at the fruit tent, and the serving of the ice cream samples in the Little House.
