Getting to know the farm
SYCAMORE – See what’s growing in local farm fields, get an up-close look at corn and soybean crops, talk to a farmer about how food is grown and bring the entire family for hands-on activities at Farm to Food and You, a new event designed to connect city families to their food. The farm event is planned for Saturday, Aug. 24, in the field at Church and North Grove Roads northwest of Sycamore.
From 3 to 7 p.m., there will be farm activities including learning about how corn and soybeans grow, getting on tractors and other farm equipment, understanding the use of modern technology in agriculture, seeing farm animals, and talking to producers about farm and food production.
“It’s an opportunity for people to visit a farm field and have a hands-on experience with the farmers who grow their food,” said Phil Montgomery, farmer and president of the DeKalb County Corn & Soybean Growers. “I think people will find this event quite unique, informational and an entertaining experience.”
