The Mason County Farm Bureau pulled off an ag-literacy mash-up May 11, combining Agriculture in the Classroom and a FARM Science Lab visit at Mason County Central Schools in Scottville.
This was the second year Mason County’s Promotion & Education team brought the countryside into town, with participation from about 20 partners from across the agricultural community pitching in alongside Michigan Farm Bureau’s FARM Science Lab. All together they showcased the immense diversity of agriculture just within Mason County.
More than 250 families took advantage of the opportunity to get close to tractors and combines, pet dairy calves and goats, and learn about the ag-technology program at Mason County Central High School.
It was hands-on fun for all, with families enjoying locally grown asparagus, Michigan-made dairy products and other agricultural treats donated by local farmers.
