About the cover… “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 the dozens of winning photographs submitted. Sponsored by the First 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 Case Cherry. Second place goes to Isiah Harris Lawson. And the third prize winner goes to Hunter Stanfield. All participants may pick up their photos at the First Farmer’s Co-Op. The Independent and the First 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.

Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles: Between now and next April remember to take pictures of your kids having fun in the country. Whenever kids are fishing, working in the garden, playing in a field or taking care of animals, these make great photo opportunities for “Kids in the Country!”
