Miguel Lopez of Marysville looks over farm equipment on the opening day of 40th annual Colusa Farm Show. Lopez is the field manager of the California Olive Ranch.

Times – and farming – have changed over the past four decades, but California’s oldest farm exhibition will reach out to growers for another year.

The Colusa County Fairgrounds will host the 42nd annual Colusa Farm Show, where the latest in agricultural equipment and technique will be on display for everyone from weekend gardeners to professional crop growers. About 250 exhibitors will present their wares and services from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 6-8.

Highlighting this year’s Farm Show will be a Feb. 6 seminar by Kevin Spafford on legacy planning. New to the event is a public speaking competition, organized by the Future Farmers of America.

Organizers describe the Farm Show, which dates to 1965, as the state’s oldest farm exposition to be held continuously in the same location.
