GREENFIELD — It wasn’t creating the model farm that proved difficult for 4-H’er Grant Friesen; it was getting the project through the door to have it judged.
There was nothing miniature about the 36-square-inch plywood frame he squeezed through the entrance of the county 4-H Exhibit Hall Tuesday morning.
“It’s a challenge to transport,” remarked his mother, Karen Friesen. “It doesn’t fit in my truck.”
The Friesen family was one of dozens that converged on the county fairgrounds this week as project judging kicked off for projects ranging from bicycles to beekeeping.
