Brown County 4-H’ers offer boxed fruit for sale

Farm Forum

Fruit may now be ordered from any 4-H member in Brown County as part of their annual fundraiser. The fresh fruit choices include five different Washington apples, and D’Anjou pears, Texas Rio Star red grapefruit, California Navel oranges and jet fresh whole Hawaiian pineapple. Also offered are beef sticks, string cheese and Pop’d Kerns (formerly Glad Corn). A new product being offered is Smokey Snack Meat Sticks.

The funds that are raised will be used for community service projects, 4-H educational programs, awards for project work and to help fund trip and training expenses. The funds will benefit all Brown County 4-H members and reach many others through the community service work 4-H members do.

4-H youth, ages 6 to 19, pledge their heads, hearts, hands and health to better living. 4-H’ers challenge everyone to eat healthy which includes two to four servings of fruit each day. Contact any 4-H family you know to order your fruit, which will be delivered to your door on March 19, 2013. Orders may also be placed by going to the SDSU Extension/Brown County 4-H Office at 1019 1st Ave. SE by February 28, 2013. Orders placed at the SDSU Extension/Brown County 4-H Office must be accompanied by payment. Orders will not be taken by phone.

Eat healthy, order fruit, and support America’s largest out-of-school youth program-4-H.
