USD 418 Second Graders are Agriculture Experts

We concluded our “In the Class and On the Farm (ICOF)” program this week. Thank you USD 418 for sharing your 2nd graders with us and valuing agriculture education.

Roosevelt Elementary students joined us on the farm on Wednesday. Sadly, I had camera issues, so I don’t have pictures of the day. Hopefully I can get a hold of some on me else’s pics.

Lincoln Elementary spent the day with us yesterday. This last group of ICOF students were awesome agriculture advocates!

Creating Bears

“I just carve away anything that isn’t a bear.” That’s how Mark Childs, chainsaw artist, carves his bears out here on the farm.

Rise of the Giants!

We entered the giant pumpkin contest at the Kansas State Fair.  Our pumpkin wasn’t the smallest (yes). However, we were soundly tromped by a family from Wichita. Spoiler alert—499.8 pounds—that’s a lot pumpkin!

Ok, so they had a little poundage on us. It took two people to lift ours. They needed the forklift. Congrats to these awesome growers!
