For the past four years, Indiana’s Family of Farmers invited Indiana State Fair attendees to follow our Recipe Trail. Trail travelers were encouraged to collect recipe cards from locations around the fairgrounds, bring them to the final destination and win a free Indiana’s Family of Farmers item for completing the trail. Last year, more than 3,000 participants completed the trail at the Indiana State Fair.

The Recipe Trail continues to help feed the hungry.
For each person who finishes the recipe trail, Indiana’s Family of Farmers donates one pound of food to food banks in Indiana has through our partner, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry. A total of 8,000 pounds of food was donated last year.
Partner with Habitat for Humanity
The Habitat for Humanity Ag House on the state fairgrounds will be a stop on this year’s recipe trail. In addition, Indiana’s Family of Farmers is donating a chest freezer and food to fill the freezer to the new homeowner. Thank you to the farmers around the state who grow our food and who generously gave back.
Visit IFOF at the DuPont Food Pavilion
The DuPont Food Pavilion returns to this year’s fair. Along with hourly food demos on the Red Gold Culinary Corner, the pavilion will also feature a retail store with more than 30 Indiana made specialty items available for purchase and a brand new Purdue exhibit!
IFOF is proud to be part of the Food Pavilion all 17 days. Along with the recipe trail, different agricultural groups will be featured at the IFOF booth each day.
