Thank you everyone who joined IGGPRA for the 2017 Harvest Hoedown

Vine/Farm Swap Meet

***UPDATED***

IGGPRA is putting on another Swap Meet this February!

June’s swap meet went well and we hope that February’s does even better. Any items related to wine, grapes or farming are welcome. Because we can use Tractor Supply’s parking lot again, sellers can pull their trucks into their spots and just open their tail gates. Of course those who would like to set up tables or pop up tents are welcome to.

Please help us get the word out!

Did you know?

IGGPRA’s Farm/Wine swap meet in July went well and we look forward to hosting another one in January. People came out to find all kinds of equipment and implements. Items too large to bring out where posted on a board by the sign up table, and by the end of the event only 2 items where left unsold. We really appreciate Tractor Supply letting us use their parking lot for the event and it was great seeing IGGPRA members. As you clean out your barns and properties this winter, keep January’s Farm/Wine Swap Meet in mind.
