Students from across White County recently participated in a day of activities and viewed educational stations to learn about a wide range of topics from electricity, livestock, honeybees, soil conservation, and farming.
On May 8, 2018, representatives from the USDA White County Soil Conservation Office, along with Farm Bureau of Tennessee Caney-Fork Electric Co-Op, Mountain Valley Beekeepers, Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency, and farmers were all in attendance during the annual Farm-City Day.
School buses filled with eager students from across the White County school system arrived at the White County Fairgrounds and were unloaded in front of the White County Agricultural Complex for a day of educational fun about life on the farm and rural living. Students from the White County High School FFA program, along with community members, greeted students as they arrived.
Elementary students learned about a wide array of topics pertaining to rural life and farming. The FFA students guided the students through all the different stations that were set up throughout the complex.
Overall, students experienced a small piece of what it takes to make a farm operate and the many pieces that makes rural living possible.
