Farm & Country Fair Aalten

The 15th edition of the Farm & Country fair in Aalten took place during the last weekend of June 2010. The theme for this annual summer event was "Experience it!" The Dutch Parrot Foundation has joined the Country fair with pleasure and enthusiasm and that certainly did not go unnoticed. The Dutch Parrot Foundation has won the award for best organization! Quite an achievement by the volunteers of our foundation!

The Farm & Country Fair consisted of no less than 350 unique stands, the intriguing follybos filled with rarities, four experience villages, and a continuous stream of dazzling shows in the five different rings, thousands of animals and pure acoustic music. A unique and highly successful festival!

During the fair, The Dutch Parrot Foundation collected over 1000 petition signatures to stop the trade in (hand-reared) baby parrots. In addition to collecting signatures The Dutch Parrot Foundation informed a lot of people about keeping parrots, parrots rights and welfare and the diet of parrots. The Chairman, Drs. Jan Hooimeijer has given a very informative workshop about keeping parrots and parakeets.

All in all a very successful event!
