Farm to School Activities
Farm Field Trips
Farm field trips provide students with the hands-on learning opportunities about how agriculture provides them with the food they eat. Students get that first hand experience of how food grows and where it comes from. Oklahoma has many premier destinations across the state that schools can visit. Check out the Oklahoma Agritourism website for lots of great ideas for your next field trip!

The free online resources for cafeterias include posters and recipes promoting a variety of locally-grown specialty crops such as tomatoes, berries, watermelon, squash, asparagus, carrots, cucumbers, peppers, peaches, sweet potatoes, broccoli and radishes.
