Girl Scouts River Valleys invites your troop or family to volunteer at Little Farm Hands for a three-hour shift on Saturday, September 1 or Sunday, September 2. Before and after the shift, you can enjoy the State Fair for free! To sign up for a shift, email Virginia R. Mold, Agriculture Specialist Minnesota State Fair or contact by phone 651-288-4440. This volunteer opportunity is recommended for ages 9 and older.
“Little Farm Hands at the Fair” is an agricultural education exhibit for children ages 3-12. They become farm hands at this free, hands-on exhibit as they experience the agricultural process—beginning at the farm and ending at the market. Little Farm Hands needs the help of many volunteers to guide children and their families through the various miniature barns. The job of the volunteer is to help the farm hands maximize their experience by making sure each simple step is completed.
