So far September is comin’ through with fall goodness. Warm colors decorate the trees and cool breezes zip through the air. The apples are crisp, the dough is rising, and produce bins are overflowing. The farm is abuzz with preparation for all the upcoming fun. What’s in store? One more Bluegrass Weekend for the season, Fall Farm Fun Days, and pumpkin season.
Another favorite fall activity is our school tours. We welcome classes from preschool through high school, MOPs groups, 4-H, and more. Spending time at a working farm is truly an enriching experience. We could go on and on about how great it is and how the kids will benefit from it, but here are a few highlights:
- Learning about planting, tending, and harvesting shows how food goes from farm to table and instills an appreciation for farming and good stewardship of the land.
- Getting a feel for how a local business operates shows the relationship between commerce and community.
- Seeing the daily operations of a farm teaches the value of dedication, teamwork, and goals.
You can schedule your school tour online or call 304-263-1168. If you want additional info, send us an email.
Here’s to a happy fall, y’all!
