Celebrate National Farm to School month with a Farm Field Trip!

October is National Farm to School month! In the Southeast, we’re celebrating by going on a farm field trip. If you live in Western North Carolina you can find a farm to visit by checking out the Hayride, our guide to farm field trips.

Download the flyer for your state below and encourage teachers and schools that you work with to take their students on a farm field trip this fall!

Make sure that you share your plans with the National Farm to School Network, and you will be entered to win some great prizes celebrating National Farm to School month! While you are on their site, check out all of the Farm to School month resources available, including press release templates.

Are you an Early Childhood Educator? October 18 is National Farm to Preschool day! Farm to preschool includes the full spectrum of child care delivery: preschools, Head Start, center-based, programs in K-12 school districts, and family home care facilities. Visit the National Farm to Preschool website for ideas to make this day special at your place of work.
