On Saturday September 30th, the Versailles FFA conducted their 2nd annual Farmers Market/Fall Harvest Sale. The event was held at the Versailles High School from 8am to 12pm. There were light refreshments served along with apple cider slushes.
The vendors for the event included: mums from Makayla Berger, honey from Nathan, Phillip and Erika Grogean, pumpkins from Elliot George, cinnamon rolls and apple dumplings from Shiloh Hess, pumpkins and gourds from Aultman Farms, Apples with caramel and cider from Downing Fruit Farm, assorted homemade baked goods and fruits and vegetables from Bowman Produce and Greenhouse, Mary Kay Makeup from Monica Goubeaux, and craft wood items from Bob’s Woodworking, Krista and Emily Harman with wreaths and garden vegetables.
The activities allowed Nathan and Phillip Grogean, Shiloh Hess and Makalya Berger to market and sell their SAE’s at the fair. Also available was pumpkin painting for the kids. The Versailles FFA will be donating from the profits to the American Cancer Society-Breast Cancer Research. Also available was a lunch stand that help raise money for the Denver bound National FFA General Livestock team.
