The Farm Feast and Tractor and Antique Machinery Show is set for Saturday and proceeds will benefit the Mowrystown FFA and FFA alumni activities.

The event will be held at the Whiteoak High School, 44 N. High St., Mowrystown. The tractor show will begin at noon and there is no charge for entry, according to an event flier. Lunch concessions and homemade ice cream will be available as well.

The Farm Feast will begin at 4 p.m. and includes pulled pork, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, dessert, and drink. While there is no set charge for the feast, donations will be accepted.

Following the feast at 5:15 p.m. an auction will be held. A couple of the typical auction items each year include any of the pulled pork and ice cream left over from the feast, according to Whiteoak High School ag teacher and FFA advisor Brian DeAtley.

He said last year containers of the pulled pork were going for $40 and $50 apiece.

DeAtley said other things to be auctioned will include donated items from local businesses and things like toy tractors.

All proceeds will benefit the Mowrsystown FFA and the the FFA alumni, he said, adding that the alumni assists the FFA students with things like sending them to the FFA national convention. He said in July the alumni are sending four students to Washington, D.C.
