Guam - Inline with Farmers Appreciation Week, the Department of Agriculture held its 10th Annual May Harvest Festival today at the Organic Demonstration Farm in Mangilao. Director Tita Taitague says the event celebrates our island farmers and the peak harvest period.

She told KUAM News, "We are proud of the farmers of Guam who have carried themselves to the many challenges of farming with the ever changing world economic-high cost of fuel, farming equipment and supplies and rising costs of utilities. Guam farmers are very resilient people and hardworking men and women who teal the soil day in and day out just to produce the fresh fruits and vegetables that we enjoy at the supermarkets and at home."

The festival each year showcases farming practices, exhibits of farm programs, and a culinary presentation of locally grown fruits and vegetables by students of the Guam Community College.
