Knee High by the First of July: Celebrating the Legacy of Corn in the District of Kent, British Columbia
Creator(s): The Agassiz-Harrison Historical Society
Over the past century, corn has become the cultural “stalk” of the community of Agassiz, British Columbia. For five generations, despite many challenges, farmers in the District of Kent have grown corn and hay to feed their dairy cattle. This exhibit traces the development of the relationship between corn and cows within a small, yet vibrant community, and explores how corn culture is often woven into the everyday lives of farming families.
