           FAYETTEVILLE – The Cumberland County Fair was awarded the “Got to Be NC” Agriculture Commissioner Award for its
      agricultural exhibit displayed during the 2019 Fair held Aug. 30 to Sept. 8 at the Crown Complex. The award was presented at the
      North Carolina Association of Agricultural Fairs annual convention held in January in Cary, N.C.                         Nelia Tolliver    Herbert L. Townes   Kharissa Federick

           Cumberland County Cooperative Extension created a 900-square foot dairy exhibit featured a milking booth, a live cow,                                          Manager
      grain bin, early 20th century farm equipment, locally grown sorghum and pumpkins and fruits and vegetables brought in as fair
      entries. Dairy products were on display to show farm-to-table aspects.
           Cumberland County Solid Waste hauled in 15 tons of mulch from the Wilkes Road Compost Facility to create soil for the
      display. Youth from the Cumberland County 4-H used garden tools to spread the mulch and make rows.
           The Junior Fair Board created an interactive family learning center to engage youth and adults. North Carolina State
      University’s Dairy Unit loaned the Discover NC Dairy kiosk. During peak hours, staff and volunteers recorded 2,438 individual
      interactions with the information kiosk and completed 431 virtual tours of the dairy farm.
           “The Cumberland County Agricultural Fair brought the dairy farm to life in a way that was educational and entertaining for
      people of all ages,” said Cooperative Extension Director Lisa Childers. “The size and prominence of our award-winning agricul-
      tural display exposed fairgoers to the important history and impact of agriculture in Cumberland County.”
           “Everyone involved with these exhibits should be very proud of their accomplishments,” said Hubert Bullard, former
      Cumberland County Fair manager. “A special thanks to the Cumberland County Cooperative Extension for a great job in putting
      all this together.”
