TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue University and the Wea Creek Orchard are teaming up to turn a barnyard into a place for more than just animals.

The Barnyard Bash was held at the Wea Creek Orchard Sunday to benefit Purdue’s International Breast Cancer Prevention and Nutrition Center.

The event had all types of different entertainment for the families that attended.

They also had the chance to enjoy cider from freshly cut and smashed apples.

Organizers said the International Breast Cancer and Nutrition Project is trying to learn how to prevent the disease.

“If we can learn how to prevent [it] by environmental changes and interactions with environment and food, anything like that, if we can prevent breast cancer anywhere in the world, we feel very fortunate,” orchard co-owner Perry Kirkham said.

The Purdue International Breast Cancer and Nutrition Project is present in 15 different countries. They hope their presence around the world will help them learn more about the disease.
