Hundreds of elementary school students learned about agriculture first hand Friday morning during the Northview High School FFA “Fresh From Florida” program in Bratt.

The program gave students a chance to make and enjoy eating their own fresh butter, get up close to farm animals and farm equipment and learn more about how food gets from the farm to their table.

    I bring my class on this field trip every year. It never disappoints! I just wish we had more time. The FFA students from both Northview and Ernest Ward are very knowledgeable and work well with my kindergartners. My kids had a great time! Thank you!
