Kids Say The Barndest Things

DSC_0449We’re just one week away from the 24th annual Farm Field Days, and boy are we egg-cited! And we’re not the only one….let’s take a look at what some of kids actually attending Farm Field Days have told us they are most looking forward to….

I wanna know how they get them crops to grow so well.

            I’m excited because it reminds me of where my mom came from and I really do like farms.

                      I would like to see all the animals and especially the pink pigs.

It is about science and science is cool.

                       I am excited for the little fat chicken, and I hope there’s popcorn.

     I am excited because I want to help the environment stay healthyI

I like Farm Field Days because I love animals and the carrots and the corn and all kinds of farm food. I don’t know much about farms, but I like everything I know.

                I can’t wait to make butter.


         I want to see if we can see a horse.

                  I am excited because I like learning hands-on.

      I just wanna see how they really do things over there.

 How do you milk a cow?

     I wish to see pigs.

               Who even knows what they’re going to do?

                       If we take care, we might see a barn.

I want to learn about what stuff is made from corn and I am curious about no-till….

      I might see a brand new thing!

                          I love tractors!

           Getting to plant, eat, and touch!

                                    I am willing to pet a farm animal

                         Because you get to learn about veggies, animals, and special things.

 Learning about farms can teach you a lot about farms.

                                       You might do the farm thing what farmers do and do their jobs.

            You can go to the farm and still be learning science.
