Recently we just went to Alfalawn farms with our FUTP 60 groups. March 14th is National Ag Day. The kids were given an amazing tour of the facility and they were taught about dairy! The kids loved it and learned a ton. Thank you Fuel Up to Play 60 and all of our amazing dairy farmers!!!! Happy National Ag Day!

How did you accomplish your goals?

The students came up with the idea of attending a dairy farm. We then called several farms in the area and found the right fit for us.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

After we found the farm we wanted to attend, we contacted another school to see if they were interested. After only a few short phone calls, we were able to partner with that school as well. The kids were able to talk to each other and share their experiences as well as the adults in the group. We all really enjoyed the time together at the farm:)
