FARMINGTON — Giddy-Up & Go 4-H Horse Club will hold its annual manure sale from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday at Genesis Farm, 92 Hammond St., off Route 133. Club members will be on hand to bag manure. Farm owner, Ken Decker, will also be in the cab of his tractor to load trucks and trailers.

Manure is available by the bag for $3 or by the tractor bucket load for $15. Larger pick-ups can hold two bucket loads.

An aged pile of mixed manure (horse, cow, chicken and pig) will be sold first. When this pile has been sold, manure will be sold that has accumulated over this past winter. There are no pesticides or herbicides in the manure.

This sale is a fundraiser for the Club to expand the group’s activities. club members recently took a field trip to a large equine hospital in New Hampshire. In the past, Giddy-Up has purchased jackets for the members and a cordless microphone to use during mounted meetings, according to a news release. Presently, the club is looking to purchase other sound system components.

Giddy-Up & Go was founded in 2007 and currently has 22 members.

Each year the club holds a fundraiser for Double B Equine Rescue and hosts several mounted meetings. Members also participate in county horse camp and 4-H horse shows.

Last year, the Club had a great response to the manure sale with trucks and trailers lined up for a good part of the morning.

For more information, call Janine Winn, club leader, at 491-1465.
