Safety Day at Hopkins Farm Creamery

Jun 19, 2014
Brent Marsh, a Sussex Master Gardener, performs as Farmer McGregor to talk about vegetables and their healthy benefits.

Local elementary students enjoy the warm day down on the farm May 13 during Progressive Agriculture Safety Day, providing education and training to make farm and ranch life safer and healthier. They learned about vegetables, bike and water safety, and the highlight, farm animals and how they provide food.
