What are School-to-Farm Days?
The event brings together 4th grade students from different elementary schools throughout the county for a day of learning about the importance of agriculture. Farmers and other professionals are on hand to present mini-lessons and demonstrations on topics such as beekeeping, sheep raising, wool carding and spinning, dairy cows, oxen, maple sugaring, vegetable production, soil ecology, chickens and more. Students visit the stations, meet the experts, see the animals and experience a taste of farm life.
