Elementary School Presentations

Since 1988 we have been bringing the farm to elementary school students around the region.

These presentations are fully hands on experience for your students to enhance and enrich your farm and community curriculum. Farmer Nelson grew up on a dairy, hog, poultry, crop farm and taught vocational agriculture at high school level.

Special Presentations

November - "Tom," the 50 pound turkey visits your classroom (usually K-4th grade)

March and April- "Perfect" the piglet visits your classroom (usually K-3rd grade)
