COLUMBUS, OH – COSI brings the farm back to the city for the ninth year in a row, with Farm Days: Little Seeds, Big Tractors. This special event runs Wednesday, August 14 – Sunday, August 18 and features more than 20 pieces of huge farming equipment arranged on the west side of COSI.
Visitors can climb into the cabs of tractors, a combine and even small farm equipment. Kids can test their driving skills on a pedal tractor obstacle course, try milking COSI's fiberglass cow (Daisy), make a seed necklace and collect Farm Days trading cards to take home. Video stations emphasize the importance of agriculture technology to feed a growing world population as well as highlight the stories of local farmers who raise everything from sheep to soybeans.
Farm Days also features baby chickens hatching and sheep shearing. COSI's popular "Path of a Farmer" game has been updated for even more fun. Visitors get a game card and collect stamps as they go through the seasons on a farm. Then they spin a wheel to see how the weather and market affect their farm profit (or loss!)
Farm Days is open during normal COSI hours. COSI is open Monday through Saturday, 10am – 5pm and Sunday noon – 6pm through Labor Day. Admission to Farm Days is included with regular COSI admission. This event is "grown" and made possible by Franklin County Farm Bureau, Bob Evans Farms and Franklin Equipment. Supported by United Producers, Inc., The Ohio State University Extension, Ohio Corn Marketing Program and Ohio Soybean Council. Media partner 92.3 WCOL.
