Fall School Group Educational Farm Tours, Horse Hay, Pumpkins
Agriculture has always been an important part of our culture and livelihood... However, the family farm is quickly disappearing from our landscape. The Leonard Farm will be hosting school groups this year beginning September 27th through November 5th on weekdays to educate youth about farm life and farm animals. Also, it is our time to celebrate one of our crops, the pumpkin.
Each child participating will receive a free pumpkin in addition to a 45-minute presentation on farm life. The cost of
each child is only $5.00. Youth will be able to see the old grocery store, "Commissary", where the farm hands purchased their food during the depression; pet farm animals, enter the smoke house and wash house, and see many old and modern farming implements. A natural spring has been developed that flows "spring water" for the livestock to drink. Mrs. Leonard taught in the public school system in Franklin County for many years before retiring several years ago. She is continuing to educate youth people about agriculture and the environment through this program. We hope you can visit us this autumn. Give us a call and reserve your visit today!
Leonard Farm also produces award-winning quality horse hay such as oat, orchardgrass and fescue. We have won many state-wide ribbons and take pride in producing a quality product.
