Hay Bale Decorating Contest to open Sept. 1

Imagination and creativity will be combined with curb appeal for the annual Hay Bale Decorating Contest sponsored by the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) Women’s Leadership Committee.

“We enjoy creating a hay bale display each year that coincides with a Trunk or Treat event that thousands of people attend,” said Kristal Harris of Pittsylvania County, Southside District leader for the VFBF Women’s Leadership Committee. “Attendees love to take a picture with our hay-bale display, which creates a conversation about agriculture.”
