Country Fair Blog Party: September 2015

It is September 1st and time to showcase some new blog posts through the Country Fair Blog Party, which I'm happy to be a co-host of.  Before we show this month's link-up, I'm going to share my three Blue Ribbon winners from August's Country Fair Blog Party:

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner - Farm Girl Cook'n's "Grandma Charlie's Purple Ribbon Cinnamon Bread"
My first Blue Ribbon winner comes from Mary of Farm Girl Cook'n.  She shared her Grandma Charlie's Purple Ribbon Cinnamon Bread last month.  It is no surprise this is a ribbon winner since the bread literally already won her a purple ribbon as a 4-Her at the County Fair.  What I love about this bread is that it is similar to Amish Friendship Bread, except with no starter mix needed and you don't have to make tons of loaves to finish out the batter.

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner - Minnesota Farm Living's "Agvocacy through baseball and the "big city" foodies"
My second Blue Ribbon winner goes to Wanda of Minnesota Farm Living.  She shared about a couple awesome agvocacy experiences that she got to be apart of earlier this summer in her Agvocacy through baseball and the "big city" foodies post.  The first event she participated in was the "Pig and a Pint" event in Minneapolis.  This event gathered influential foodies and pig farmers to talk about food.  It sounds like she had some great conversations and got to eat some delicious food.  The second thing she got involved with was a pork promotion at a Minnesota Twins game which included her throwing out the first pitch of the game.  How cool is that!  You better check out her post to learn more about both events.

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner: A Day in the Life of a Cow from Of Kids and Cows
My final Blue Ribbon goes to Jodi of, Of Kids and Cows.  She shared a neat post that documented A Day in the Life of a Cow on her blog, as told be one of her dairy cows.  It was a fun post that was also educational.  Their dairy cows get milked three times a day and fed twice a day.  Their cows eat 100 pounds of feed a day!  It sounds like besides milking and eating, this cow also enjoys napping and socializing ;)

Country Fair Blog Party monthly linky party - starts the 1st of each month
I can't wait to see what great posts get linked up this month as we have our Country Fair Blog Party.  Country Fairs are all about food, family, friends, farming, animals, arts and crafts, canning, baking and more.  And that is what our our blog hop is all about too.  Feel free to join our Country Fair by linking up to 3 of your posts.  This blog hop is a great opportunity to check out new blogs, and if you blog yourself, have your posts reach a new audience.  Be sure to visit some other party goers and let them know you are stopping by through the Country Fair Blog Party.

  3. Buoy your helium expands up to the roof (ensure the roof is certainly not a harsh/finished one).


  4. The cost of running a dehumidifier should be weighed up against the cost of more ‘natural’ methods such as heating and ventilating the room.
