MAYVILLE - There were two goats, a herd of bunnies and a flock of chickens.

Throw in some wine and chocolate milk, and don't forget the giant fake cow with interactive udders.

Hundreds of local residents turned out Sunday, April 7 for the sixth-annual "Pride of Chautauqua" farming show at the Chautauqua Suites in Mayville. The event, organized by the Chautauqua Farm Bureau, is designed as a "try local, buy local" function to highlight the county's deep agricultural roots.

"We grow every year," said Pride of Chautauqua committee chairwoman and Farm Bureau vice president Karen Barie. "We think this is a great way to show what it means to live in Chautauqua County."

More than 45 vendors were present Sunday, some selling baked goods and plants, while another demonstrated how to preserve foods through canning.
