Buddy Phagan of Mountain Top Productions created and maintains the website for us.  Please visit our site to see photographs of this year’s Ag-Venture as well as previous Ag-Ventures.  There are also promotional videos and information about the program and its sponsors, as well as a  teacher’s section with curriculum and educational links.

A special thanks goes to our Highlands County Cattlemen.  They have prepared our steak dinner for 16 years, and do an outstanding job.  Those men know how to cook a steak!

Over the last 16 years, Glisson’s Animal Supply has provided thousands of bales of hay for us to use in the stations. We can’t thank them enough! Ag-Venture wouldn’t be the great program that it is, without the  generosity and cooperation of the Highlands County Fair Assn. and Sebring Firemen, Inc. Thank you so much for providing this great location to hold Ag-Venture. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
