Hillsborough County Farm Bureau

Ag Abilities

Hillsborough 2Ag Abilities, hosted by The Hillsborough County Farm Bureau has been a remarkable success since 2001. The event attracts young Exceptional Education Students (ESE) from schools throughout the county and is held at the state fairgrounds in Tampa. The half day competition allows volunteers to interact with students while they learn about agriculture. Sample categories include the foods we eat, tractor driving and animal breed identification. Students are served lunch and participate in an awards ceremony. It is a heartwarming day for the students as well as the volunteers who make the day such a great success.
