-North Country Enterprises is hosting the 51st Eau Claire Farm Show on March 4th and 5th at Eau Claire’s Indoor Sports Center.
I spoke with Steve Henry, of the family owned North Country Enterprises, and he said the Farm Show is the second longest running and has been called, “the granddaddy of farm shows.”
Mr. Henry said the appeal of this show lies with the farmers. “Both retired and younger farmers like getting together. They get to see something new including the latest in equipment from over 300 companies.”
“Being a family owned company,” Mr. Henry continued, “we do our best to provide fun things for farmers to do. Plus, we offer free health clinics, free admission, free parking and free entertainment. Farmers like action, so there isn’t a lot of sit down and listen meetings. There are more demonstrations and hands on things for people to do.”
