Animal lovers of all ages are invited to the Museum of Ventura County’s Agriculture Museum in Santa Paula to enjoy a free “Farm Animal Fair,” from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 4, 2014. Members of the Future Farmers of America from Santa Paula High School, along with their FFA advisor and agriculture teacher, Alex Flores, will bring young animals to the Museum’s back lot. They will answer questions and explain the details of caring for the animals. Animals expected at the Farm Animal Fair are swine (pigs), cattle, sheep and goats. All the FFA students are studying animal husbandry. They raise their animals for three to ten months, depending on the type of animal, and take them to be judged at the Ventura County Fair in August.

Sunday, May 4 is the first Sunday of the month. Free admission to the Agriculture Museum is offered every first Sunday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Special activities take place on Free First Sundays, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Visitors can enjoy the following summer exhibitions at the Museum: “Growing Up Growing Beans: Remembering Ventura County Limas,” “While the Sun Shines: Horse-Powered Haymaking,” and “The Vernacular Bestiary: Animal Snapshots from A – Z.”
