More than a thousand people are expected to celebrate organic farming by kicking back at the Kickapoo Country Fair Saturday.
Food and crafts booths cover the grounds of the Organic Valley Family of Farms headquarters in LaFarge.
The cooperative of about 700 farms and the Kickapoo Valley Reserve are hosting this second annual fair. The all-day event also features entertainment ... tours of organic farms and guided canoe tours on the Kickapoo River. Members of the cooperative say organic foods are better for the earth and better for people's health. The event culminates with an organic picnic to benefit the 8,500-acre Kickapoo Valley Reserve.
