Thousands came to Cherryland Dairy in Sturgeon Bay for a plateful of pancakes, eggs, and Door County staples, but it meant so much more to Sevastopol FFA members and alumni. It was the first time the Sevastopol FFA was able to host the event since 2019 because of COVID-19 concerns. It has been since 2018 when it was last held on a working farm since the Valmy Thresheree grounds hosted the 2019 event. For Brittney Larsen of Ephraim and her kids Argo, Agnes, Kiel, and Fredde, seeing the animals and hopping on farm equipment were highlights.
For Sevastopol FFA Advisor Dale Carlson, the event means the organization will be able to fund some of the activities they like to do during the year and scholarships for future graduates.
Carlson thanked all of the visitors and the over 200 volunteers for their support of this year's event. Cherryland Dairy also raises pigs, collects sap for maple syrup, and cuts wood for its sawmill.
