  • Youth Agriculture Day teaches students food origin

    The fourth graders in Henry County participated in a Youth Agriculture Day last Wednesday with the help of Henry County 4-H members, FFA officers and great volunteer leaders.
    The idea behind the field trip is for youth to learn what agricultural products are grown and produced in the county.
    While Henry County has a rich heritage of agriculture there are many students today who have never been up close to a calf, chicken or goat.
    While there are fields of tobacco, soybeans and corn that line our highways many youth cannot identify the crops grown in the county.
