Taking a field trip out to a farm can be a wonderful way to engage students in learning about food. They get to meet farmers, see how food grows, understand what kinds of food grows in their community, and maybe engage in hands-on activities that let them learn even more. These resources will help you find a farm and plan a farm field trip.
