Quotes and comments

“Kiddie Days is a great chance for us to get young kids to interact with farm animals. We like to talk with them a little bit about where their food comes from and where their milk comes; it’s a good opportunity for us to teach them about agriculture.” — Ben Walsh, assistant director of farm administration and operations farm manager

 “Some of the most popular activities for kids is in our Farmer for a Day area where they can collect eggs from toy chickens, pretend to milk wooden cows and pick apples from trees, and pet bottle lambs and calves.”—Ben Walsh
