Students Learn About Ag During Northview’s ‘Fresh From Florida’ Event (With Gallery)

March 2, 2024

About 600 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 see farm animals, take part in hands-on activities, and learn more about how food gets from the farm to their table.

The program was moved indoors this year due to rain.

Previous Northview Fresh From Florida programs have been named the best in the state by the Florida FFA and the chapter has been recognized nationally for their efforts.

    Growing up on a farm in Cottage Hill, we had a large variety of animals. We also had 3 orphan coons that my Uncle Aulice McKenzie brought us to raise.As a result my mom (Joe Ann Commings Lamb had a petting zoo for Local bus loads of elementary students. The buses would come, kids would view and play with the animals and play under the pecan trees then eat lunch in the shade.
    The little coons would run along behind the kids everywhere they went with no issues with bites. It was a fun time.
    More of this is needed so that our young impressive youth can learn where the food in the grocery stores comes from, that chocolate milk doesn’t come from brown cows.
