Tuesday, May 17, the Monroe County fifth graders attended a field trip to the Monroe County Fairgrounds. While there, the students learned about electricity, honey bees, pollination, recycling, deer and turkey calls, furs and pelts, and how the ingredients for pizza are originally grown or raised on a farm. Farm Bureau members Glenda Thomas and Bess Lusk presented, “My pizza comes from a farm.” Monroe County Farm Bureau members John Lusk, Bill Thomas, Mark Landefeld and Steve Burkhart were volunteers. The students were able to see different whole ingredients like tomatoes, wheat, milk and peppers. They students learned how the ingredients were used to make the dough, sauce and cheese.

These organizations helped make this even successful; Noble SWCD, Monroe County OSU Extension Office, Monroe County Wildlife Officer, Monroe County Herb Group, Monroe County Farm Bureau, South East Ohio Joint Solid Waste Management District, South Central Power, and ODNR-Division of Forestry. 

The students received a goodie bag with various items: flash light, pencil, cow mask, cow eraser, Frisbee, recipes and many more. Some of the donations were from the Dairy  Association, Lashley Tractor, Baker and Son Equipment, and the Soybean Association. After the presentation, Riesbecks pizza was provided for the students to enjoy.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
