Your support is important to us……….
Aberfoyle Agricultural Society 1840 to 2012 was one of the first community organizations in Puslinch, playing a large part in the development of agriculture and improvement of home life, nutrition and education. When more that 80% of the community were involved in agriculture, the annual competitions helped to improve breeds in both livestock and field crops. The Homecraft exhibits were training future homemakers in all the skills needed in a world where, if you didn’t make what you needed at home, you probably did without.
Society has changed, but the skills learned by children and teens, who by doing their very best win ribbons and recognition, and thereby develop skills and self confidence, will always be needed.
All areas of the Fair are available for Sponsorship – your assistance in the support of the following activities, or others, will provide you with recognition from an established public of fair-goers. Even recent residents of the township are here because they are searching for the rural lifestyle, the sense of community which permeates the agricultural community.
Your sponsorship of any of our activities will provide extensive recognition. We have listed a few in this brochure, but any special activity in which you may be interested can be sponsored, and your support will be recognized with signage, announcements, special Thank You in our Fall Fair Prize Book, and a listing on the Sponsors Sign.
The Fall Prize Book is supplied to Puslinch residents and to all previous contributors or entrants, with extra copies at the Township offices, the Library, at the Farmer’s Market and this year on our website.
Aberfoyle Agricultural Society has produced the Aberfoyle Fall Fair since 1840. All our activities, the Fall Fair, the Spring Chicken BBQ and the Tractor Pull are run and operated by volunteers.
Our funds come from municipalities, corporations, local merchants, and residents. We receive some help from government agencies at the provincial and local levels, but we couldn’t do it without your support.
Your contribution will help us to build future farmers and good citizens all while having a good time.
