A nonprofit community farm plans to host a country fair on Saturday to raise money for its goal of creating a sustainable local food source.

People for Environmental Action and Community Health, also known as p.e.a.c.h., will host the fair, which will feature local music, goat milking and games including a pie eating contest, corn hull contest, horseshoes and seed spitting contest.

Morning workshops will include permaculture design, a plant walk and composting. Local elk burgers, hot dogs and grass-fed beef hamburgers will be served off the grill. There will be a beer garden and freshly squeezed lemonade.

Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 12 to 17. Children younger than 12 will be admitted free.

Money raised will help the group’s new 30-acre farm. The group’s mission is to create a sustainable local food system that provides nutritious fresh, organic produce to people regardless of income.

The farm is at 10425 S. Andrus Road. Call Rachael for more information at (509) 981-8560.
