We appreciate the efforts of the county Farm Bureau staff and volunteers, who work to teach students about were their food comes from. This is done by in many ways, including hosting educational events for students and/or teachers, disseminating our educational resources and visiting classrooms. We would not be able to reach the amount of students and educators that we do without you!
