What vegetable grows under ground?

What meat do you get from pigs?

Why are Bees important?

These are questions first graders answered while attending Polk County's 19th annual Fun on the Farm Day at the Polk County 4-H Showbarn in Benton.

The event was coordinated by the Polk County U.T. Extension. First graders from all Polk County schools attended the day-long event. Students moved through nine exhibits including live animals, soils and gardening demonstrations, a farm tractor, butter making, as well as Taste of the Farm, forestry, food, games and bees.

Fun on the Farm Day gave students an understanding of farm life and farm products. The coordinators of the Farm Day would like to say thanks to all who helped make Fun on the Farm Day a big success: Polk County Soil and Water Conservation, NRCS, Ocoee Region Bee Keepers Association, Melissa Carden, Clarence McClure, Kim Frady, April Haney, Joel and Keri Cox, Rose Haynes, Sanders and Becky Whaley, Bill Trew, TN Division of Forestry and Polk County 4-H Members. Farm Day was fully sponsored by the Polk County Farm Bureau.
