Food For America...

Autumn Olive Farms Boer Bok loving the attention.

Would you like some hay?
 These are pictures from the Food For America day that the Wilson Memorial High School FFA put on this morning.  Food For America is a program where preschoolers go around to different stations and are able to get a hands on experience with farm animals, planting seeds, sitting on a tractor and even "milking" a cow.  

The FFA students did a great job.  It is never too early to learn about where your food comes from!  I'll bet there will be interesting discussions at the dinner table of these preschoolers tonight!
This is a baby lamb not a calf!
