Ryan and Heidi are life-long farmers in Baroda and Stevensville. Their two farms raise grain, hay, Black Angus and Texas Longhorn cattle. Both Ryan and Heidi enjoy sharing their love of agriculture through art. This year was a challenge to come up with an agricultural theme so instead they are excited to share a whimsical, interactive piece – So Many Things to Eat with Sir Bites-A-Lot. Hopefully you’ll stop by and take your picture with him!
