CREAM OF THE CROP
Starting in the 1920’s Island Center was the site of an annual island wide agricultural fair. Many of the farmers that vied for one of the 179 award categories, including ‘Best Mangel,’ (a giant fodder beet), lived close to the site of the fair held at Island Center Hall. Greenhouses, chicken ranches and dairies dotted the area. On this tour we’ll walk to one of the remaining farms still in operation. We’ll have the opportunity to explore its trails, see its livestock and learn a bit about its history.
