Farm Day  September 27th, 2016

butterflysStudents spent the day learning about farms, ranches, and how food gets to the table. They also learned about the biodiversity of Amador’s regions, from timber forests to croplands. There are over 24 interactive stations that satisfy state curriculum standards, demonstrating to the children how agriculture gets from the farm to their forks.

Local farmers and ranchers are a pivotal component of Farm Day. Many of them bring equipment and animals to the event and are speakers sharing their passion and love for farming and ranching with the youth. Others contribute financially by making donations so the schools are able to participate for free.

trappingAmador Farm Day is led by a group of individuals representing federal, state and county government organizations, local farming and ranching organizations, local farmers and ranchers, teachers, and a number of interested community members. The event is organized by the University of California Cooperative Extension, in cooperation and support with Farms of Amador, Amador Resource Conservation District, USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, Argonaut FFA, Amador County Fairgrounds, Amador County Agriculture Department, Sierra Pacific Industries, Tumbas Vineyards, and many community members. The major event sponsors include the Amador County Farm Bureau and Charles Spinetta Winery and Vineyards whose generous donations make the event possible.

From the paper and pencils they use in the classroom to the homes they live in, Farm Day gives kids an opportunity to not only learn about the diversity of agriculture commodities grown in Amador County, but learn firsthand from the people that grow and raise these wonderful agricultural products. Farm Day gives kids a whole new appreciation for our local farmers and the hard work it takes to get food to the table.

For questions about Farm Day, or to add your support for this and other cooperative events in the county, contact Scott Oneto with the University of California, at 223-6834 or sroneto@ucanr.edu
