To The Daily Sun,

New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom recently hosted its fourth School to Farm two-day event for Belknap County fourth grade school students. This event was once again held at Ramblin' Vewe Farm in Gilford with 378 students attending plus their teachers and chaperones. On these two days, the farmland was bursting with excited students learning where their local food comes from and seeing how important it is to keep agriculture right here in New Hampshire.

We wish to thank all the presenters who exhibited and presented an educational program for the students during the day. This year our presenters were Pemi-Baker Beekeepers, Huckins Farm, Prescott Farm Environmental Education, Ox-K Farm, Belknap County Farm Bureau, Suroweic Farm, Belknap County Cooperative Education, Belknap County Conservation District, Shepherd's Hut Market, Ramblin' Vewe Farm and Lindon Garlic Farm. Again a big thank you to Ramblin' Vewe Trust for allowing us to use their farm land for this event.

However, this event would not be possible without our sponsorships. Thank you to Ramblin' Vewe Farm, Moulton Farm, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Farm Family Insurance, Cabot Creamery Cooperative, Barbara and Bill Angevine, Huckins Farm, and Allison and Jon Howe.
