SHERIDAN — The fifth annual Sheridan Local Foods Expo will take place Oct. 5-9.

We are excited to help support some of the youth organizations within our community that reinforce our vision, like 4-H, FFA and school garden initiatives. To have a successful producer culture in our state, we must first work on educating and supporting our children,” Gregory added.
