Taking kids to local farms has many benefits. Children need to appreciate that food doesn't grow at the grocery store. Families in our community grow the food that goes to the grocery store. It' is good to see vegetables and fruit growing from the ground so that they learn to appreciate the importance of clean air and clean water. They see that it goes into the food we eat. They also see at the farmer's store a variety of items that can be made with fruits and vegetables, such as apple pie, apple butter, apple cider, dried apples, apple juice. It helps them think creatively of how to cook other foods. It teaches children to support our local farmer by buying local produce. It helps our local economy.
