THE IMPORTANCE OF FARM FIELD TRIPS AND FAMILY FARM VISITS
When you talk to children about gardens or farms or growing food, the response that you get usually has something to do with “grandmaw” or “grandpaw,” not “mom and dad.” Children today are one generation removed from agriculture and their connection to agriculture is through their grandparents, if at all. Most people bemoan the fact that children in inner cities don’t have a clue about farms. Children in rural areas don’t know about farms either and they should! You hear all the time that children believe that their food comes from the grocery store and it’s true.
Our aim is to provide a unique, fun and educational interactive outdoor experience with a variety of friendly farm animals & rural culture activities! You’re going to have a lot of fun!
