New Jersey State Fair 2012 Open Poultry Show…

One of the highlights of the summer and benefits of living in NJ is the opportunity to attend the state fair. The fair is located at the Sussex County Fairgrounds in Augusta, New Jersey. This is about a 40 minute ride from Macopin Farm here in West Milford, NJ.

The fair offers something for just about everyone. I will add more details and photos later when I have time.

Also present was John Pickell from Kuhl Corporation a great place to buy your waterers, feeders and other supplies for you birds at a great price.  There are always bargains from this company at the shows so keep that in mind as well!

Then of course the expert on chickens Peter Brown aka The Chicken Doctor who is awesome and the expert when it comes to what ails your birds and how to keep them healthy.  I cannot say enough about his expertise in this field.  Every penny spent with him is well worth it as the knowledge you will come away with will help you and your flock forever!  He sells a wide variety of products for your birds and it is a must to stop by his table at the shows.

Nobody from our farm got to Champion Row yet but we will keep working towards that goal as outlined in The Standard of Perfection.
