Adopt A Farmer

Fourth grade classrooms across the state have the chance to "adopt" a farmer for the school year. Our farmers then send the classroom monthly video updates about what is going on at the farm that month. The farmer also visits the classroom at least once during the school year. For more information or to register your class to "adopt" a farmer email rebecca@agunited.org.
