I think it is important for children to understand where their food comes from. While we have a garden at home and they understand how we grow vegetables, I wasn’t sure if they were fully understanding the connection between animals and meat and dairy products.
It is also important for me to get the kids out to experience things first hand, instead of just read about them in books. In books all barns are red, the cows and chickens wander about the yard and the farmers drive their tractors home at night.
So, I jumped at the chance to take the kids to a Farm Fun day at Homestead Farms. I think it is a great idea for homeschooled kids and public school students alike!
