Agricultural Heritage

The Park County Fair is a celebration of the Powell Valley’s agricultural heritage. At the base of Heart Mountain next to Yellowstone National Park, the fairgrounds are in Powell located in northwest Wyoming.

From 1907 through the early 1950’s Homesteading gave American’s looking for new opportunities the promise of landownership. If they were rugged enough to survive the cold and smart enough to make a profit, they stayed. Our high desert can bloom because of flood irrigation. Park County has a steady supply of water from the Shoshone Project a Bureau of reclamation venture. Snowmelt from Yellowstone fills the Buffalo Bill Dam and travels through a series of tunnels, canals, laterals, to the farmer’s headgates by gravity. No energy is used to aid the water’s journey to the fields. However, energy is created at several points along the way: Buffalo Bill Power Plant, Heart Mountain Power Plant and the Ralston Power Plant.

Flood irrigation gives the crops that we produce Unique qualities. Our grass-fed beef is lean, our barley is golden, local foods are just better in Powell, Wyoming.
