Well, the New York State Fair's 2013 edition is almost here.
And in the spirit of the fair, Empire State Farming will be celebrating with a series that will run each day of the fair and some special stories along the way.
Later today, look for a photo and news about this year's Butter Sculpture. Also there will be a story about a new exhibit this year in which fair visitors can see the live birth of a dairy calf.
Then on each day of the fair, I will post an item I am calling "One Thing." Stay tuned to find out what it's all about.
Have fun at the fair. And remember, while riding the rides and eating all that food, stop in to the animal barns and talk to the farmers and check out the beekeepers and maple producers in the Horticulture Building.
These people are what the fair is really all about.
