Thank you Jarrett Darrah

heritage-hog-jarrettWe are extremely grateful for the donation of the first annual Heritage Hog from 4-H member, Jarrett Darrah. Darrah, from Southside Topnotch 4-H club is also an active member in the newest ag chapter in El Dorado County – Union Mine FFA.

As a Senior at Union Mine High school, Darrah is currently exploring his college opportunities to pursue a career as an architect while competing in cheer/gymnastics. 

Jarrett raises his livestock projects alongside his sister, Payton Darrah, who is also a 4-H member of Southside Topnotch 4-H club and a member of the Union Mine FFA.

Thank you to all of the 4-H and FFA exhibitors for the hard work you all put into raising your animals and being a vital part of El Dorado County Fair.
