The Essex County Farmyard is both an educational and entertainment venue for fairgoers. Standing around the fenced-in grass are, sometimes three-deep, they can watch kids as they try to climb to the top of the "Money Pole" for a cash prize, learn about the Essex County Sheriff's K-9 Unit, watch hen flying and cock crowing contests and observe the shearing of sheep. Visitors may also walk through the Farmyard tent to visit with tiny piglets, sheep with their lambs, and other farm animals. Watch for the special Farm Animal Fun shows.
