With antique equipment, demonstrations, a museum and plenty of activities for children, Ivy Lowrey said the event is a way “to demonstrate what farming was like in Floyd County long ago.”
The farm is located at 2416 Turkey Mountain Road N.E. near the intersection of Bell’s Ferry Road and Ga. 140.
The expo is a fun family event that serves as a learning experience to preserve the time-honored traditions and customs of agricultural life, said Lowrey.
Included will be a collection of antique tractors and farm equipment, hay and pony rides for children, food, drinks and homemade ice cream.
There will also be demonstrations, including quilting, corn cultivation and a stationary hay bailer.
The idea, said Lowery, is to show people how much different things were done decades ago before the emergence of technology changed the process of farming.
The expo is scheduled for July 15-16, beginning at 9 a.m. on that Friday and 8 a.m. on Saturday. The event ends both days at 6 p.m.
