Farm Fest

Each year, an Oneida County farm opens its gates to local school children to learn about local agriculture on a working farm.  During the day, 4th and 5th grade students take a field trip to the farm accompanied by teachers.  The students visit different stations that cover a variety of topics and learn about how the farm runs as well as the importance of local agriculture to Oneida County's economy. In the evening, the farm is open to the public.

Students can also participate in the Poster Contest and the winning classroom is treated to an Ice Cream Social!
