On Dec. 8, a group of local farmers and their companions gathered at the Pine Lodge in Bristol for an annual “office party” of sorts.
Nancy Pirie was one of the organizers of the Farmers and Friends Christmas party and said that the event began as a way for the agricultural producers and their colleagues to get together and bring in the holidays.
“They used to have a really good turnout of all the companies that support farmers. We’re trying to get them back involved,” she said, explaining that many local businesses donate to the silent auction. “They give us door prizes and auction items but we want them to come. That’s why we say farmers and friends, we really want everybody to come.”
