ALABAMA, USA — Alabama farmers want to help your kids learn more about what you eat and how it gets there. Questions like how to peanuts grow, what's the difference between a cow and a calf, and how do you grow different fruits and vegetables will be answered in these tours.
They will be held every Friday through May 22, at 10 a.m.
“Parents and their children are making huge adjustments as their homes become classrooms, and we want to help by offering entertaining and educational field trips from some of our farmers,” said Jeff Helms, Alabama Farmers Federation Communications Department Director. “While these videos will target third- through fifth-graders, people of all ages will learn more about how farmers grow food, fiber and timber.”
