“Modern Ag on the Move” mobile farm exhibit trailer has been easily integrated as an educational tool at fairs, festivals, and other community events. The trailer features colorful graphics and informational displays. Its games and interactive materials engage visitors and give them a taste of United States agriculture. As visitors explore both the interior and exterior of this trailer unit, they learn about a variety of agricultural topics. They get to delve into state agriculture facts and read about the highly technological and scientific skills that go into becoming a farmer.

What Can We Do at The AG Tent?

Agriculture Tent


​​​Sponsored by                    ; Supporting local family farms with Michigan agriculture.               

The Hometown Agricultural Education tent first appeared at our festival a few years ago and is now a featured destination for many. Come and learn with hands on exhibits and live animals about the abundance of Michigan agriculture. 

Neil Kentner capably served as Director of the Hometown Days Agricultural Education Tent at the time of his passing. His leadership, energy, wit and vision was an inspiration to all who knew him. Neil was well respected as an exhibitor and judge in multiple species throughout Michigan and nationally. He will be forever missed.

The tent is now run by Angel & Gary Stroik; the owners and operators of Harmony Family Farm. Bringing some of their own animals to our festival, they educate patrons on livestock and agriculture.

Supports keeping our streets clean.
