Gwinnett 4-H Farm Friends 2016 at Gwinnett County Fair - Sept. 15 to 25, 2016

Have you ever wanted to take your parents to a Farm Friends Zoo? Here is your chance to attend the longest running event ever held through Gwinnett 4-H. Our Farm Friends began in 1991 and have expanded over the years to be the best educational tool at Gwinnett County Fair. We offer the Farm Friends only during the fair each fall.

We not only are open during the regular fair hours, but also offer pre-school tours in the mornings. Scheduling for tours can be arranged through our office (678.377.4010.) We would love to have your group join us for a tour and then leave with a delicious cold milk from Mayfield Dairy.

Go to the 4-H Home page and scroll down to the bottom to see the available times and dates. Hope to see you there!
