On the next episode of the Southern Ohio Farm Show on Wednesday, Dec. 23, we have some special guests from the North Pole. Santa and Mrs. Claus stopped by a local farm when they were out looking at the festive lights in the area and they will make a guest appearance on the Southern Ohio Farm Show. The contestants in the lighting contest will also be featured in this special holiday program.
In this week’s episode, the Fairfield FFA Chapter was highlighted with their soybean field they planted as a class project. Other segments included how to care for poinsettias, information on cover crops, and how to make peanut butter cups for the holidays.
