Donations of funds and hogs are being accepted for the 2016 Christmas Basket Project. CCAA members give generously to this project, which goes to local Christmas Basket missions and to help the area food pantries during the year.
Here is how you can help. If you can donate hogs, they need to be taken to Burlington Locker Plant on Dec. 1 from 8-10 a.m. Or another option is to deliver to Heinold’s November 28-30 and say what they are for. Please call Sam Moffitt so he can communicate with Burlington meats on how many you might bring. We are in need of about 10-15 hogs. Burlington Meat’s number is 765-566-3360. Any questions you can contact Sam Moffitt at 574-721-4769
If you would like to donate funds to help pay for the pork processing, please send your check payable to Carroll County Agriculture and send it to PO Box 62, Flora, Indiana 46929.
Thank you for your support to help to make families’ Christmas brighter.

Indiana Farm Bureau, in conjunction with the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture, will host a free listening session on Nov. 28 at the Beck Agricultural Center in West Lafayette from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to engage farmers across the state on issues concerning the farm bill. The meeting kicks off with lunch, followed by a short program by Dr. Jim Mintert and an update on Indiana Farm Bureau’s and the American Farm Bureau Federation’s efforts working toward the 2018 Farm Bill. The rest of the session will be spent in discussion and Q&A to gain feedback from farmers on what is and is not working for them in the current farm bill.
This meeting is open to the public and you can register at the door.
More information regarding the farm bill can be found here. The AFBF Farm Bill Working Group has examined issues, information gaps and analysis needed to engage members in the development of a new farm bill and has provided a series of informational papers to consider. The site also includes helpful videos and resources links.
