Pat Canaday remembers watching horses in the barns of the Altamont Fair when she was a child living in suburban Westmere.
Now she cares for 92 sheep on her 30-acre farm, and spreads her passion for agriculture as a member of the fair’s board of directors.
“Our mission of agriculture is so important to preserve and maintain,” Canaday said. “Our kids are missing our pride of working with soil. That’s the foundation of how all of us are enhanced.”
