Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

It's Ag Week at Berry College

Berry College was founded on working your way through school.  That is still a big part of the education that students receive.  Agriculture continues to thrive at Berry, and they celebrate that each year with special events. In the past they have lined the entrance road with tractors, trucks and farm equipment.  This year the events include:

Cow milking demonstration and Farrier (horseshoeing) and Bull Riding!  

The first two events take place on the lawn of Krannert between 11 - 1 on April 2 and 3. 
The Bull Riding is Friday, April 5 on the Mountain Campus.  Before the Bull Riding there will be
a petting zoo
face painting
Bruster's ice cream

The gates open at 6:30 and Bull Riding begins at 8:00 p.m.  The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for kids 12 and under.  Berry folks get in free with their ID.  Bull Riding will take place at the Gunby Equine Center on the Mountain Campus.  To get there take the stretch road like you are going to Swan Lake, Frost Chapel or the Old Mill.  The Gunby Center is on the left, look for signs.

Though not part of Ag Week, you may be interested in purchasing some Berry feed beef or Berry cheese.  The Berry Student Enterprises have sales of beef and cheese on a regular basis. There is nothing quite as tasty as Berry beef! For more information you can email
