Ag expo Friday at museum

An expo celebrating the bounty, diversity and importance of Michigan and Ottawa County farms, orchards and food processing industries will take place from 5-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14, at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, 200 Washington Ave.
Sep 12, 2012


Michigan’s agricultural production is the second-most diverse in the United States, after California. Agriculture is Michigan’s No. 2 industry, after automobile manufacturing. Ottawa is the largest agriculture-producing county in Michigan.

Ranging from small blueberry farms to co-ops that bring regional produce to market, from breweries and wineries to boutique producers of condiments, from cultivators of chestnut trees to factory-scale hog farms, the Michigan and Ottawa County bring a cornucopia of foods to tables nation-wide and world-wide.

Combining family fun and education, the event will focus on agriculture and food production in and around Ottawa County and host more than 30 participants.

The expo is free.

For information, call the Tri-Cities Historical Museum at 616-842-0700.
