Farm to School Virtual Field Trip Series

Virtual Field Trip Series

October is National Farm to School Month, a time to celebrate our connections between students and local food, share our farm to school stories, and show gratitude to our school nutrition and farmer heroes providing essential services during these pandemic times.

The Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom program is partnering with the Midwest Dairy to host a series of free Virtual Field Trips during October to celebrate the connection between K-12 students and local farmers. In-person classrooms, as well as students distance learning, are invited to join us to meet farmers and tour farms that provide hot dogs, lettuce, apples, vegetables, milk and more to Minnesota school cafeterias.
