“Kids in the Country” is reminiscent of a simpler life, a time with fewer appointments and more time at home and in the fields. While many of the kids in these pictures may know more about gaming systems and computers than they do about harvesting corn and weaning calves, they still know how to have a good time in the country. This is evidenced by the stacks of photos we received of Chester County kids exhibiting good old-fashioned country fun. The only thing that was not fun about putting this special edition together was choosing only three “winners” from more than 100 winning photographs submitted. Sponsored by the Henderson/Chester Farmer’s Co-Op and the Chester County Independent, “Kids in the Country” is a reflection of life here in Chester County, a county with deep agricultural roots. It depicts the beauty of our community and the children who will continue the traditions. Selected as the first place winner is Danielle Brewer with “Bubba.” She will receive a prize of $100. Second place goes to Benjamin Elder. He will receive $50. And the third prize winner goes to Braelyn and Braxton Ellis. They will receive $25. All participants may pick up their photos at the Co-Op. The Independent and the Henderson/Chester Farmer’s Co-Op would like to thank all of our young farmers, gardeners, and farm animal friends, as well as their parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles who participated by sending us such a wonderful selection of photographs.
