Educators from Walnut Spring Farms in Elkton, Md., recently visited Elk Ridge Elementary School to present their Farm to School program for first-grade students.

The program consists of four hands-on stations, including "live animals," where students met and learned about goats, sheep, rabbits, chickens, and ducks; "The Ins and Outs of a Cow," and "The Corn Experience."

Farm to School is designed to give students a better understanding of where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture in their daily lives. The Elk Ridge program was fully funded by the Chester-Delaware County Farm Bureau.
