Farmers for a Day

 

Hustonville Elementary students got a chance to sharpen their farming skills and learn all about the world of agriculture on September 18th as they participated in the mobile program "Agriculture Adventures" with Tonya Murphy and Derby, the talking horse.

After learning how to make a pizza from scratch, from soil to serving, students broke into groups and rotated through several hands-on agriculture stations.

The day of agricultural activities was sponsored by the Lincoln County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee. Volunteers from First Southern National Bank, PBK Bank, Ag Credit, Farm Credit and Future Farmers of America guided elementary students through various agricultural activities and lessons.
