I called for details, and I'm SSOOOO going to the tailgate. Woody is great, and I'm really excited to check out Berkshire Farm.  The best part is that the proceeds will benefit the Ag program there. I can't wait to check it out!

Thanks to all that came on Sunday! It was a great day. Lots of sellers and buyers both. Really cant thank everyone enough for the help and support. We dont raise much money, but what we makes helps support the kids program. I will post at a later time with the date of our Fall Sale. Thanks again. Woody
