Virtual Farm Field Trip

This classroom-based program enables students to learn more about where their food comes from, through an interactive presentation and virtual visit from a local dairy farmer. Using Zoom video, a farmer “visits” the classroom to engage with students – to take them on a tour, answer questions about dairy farming, and give them a better sense of what agriculture and food production are all about.
