Hundreds of third graders got a hands-on education at Friday's Ag Day on the farm.

They learned about nutrition from the Johnson County 4-H Club, water conservation from Prairielands Groundwater Conservation District and milk cows from Southwest Dairy Farmers. Students had an opportunity to get up close and personal with plow horses from the American Draft Horse Association, and a pig, a rabbit, sheep and cows brought by Centennial High and Burleson High FFA students.

Texas Farm Bureau had a truck displaying agriculture from our daily lives and Environmental Services from the City of Burleson played a game with the students that demonstrated how pollutants move through various bodies of water.

This is a program Russell Farm plans to continue growing through local schools and this was a very successful first year! #getyourfarmon

Recycling is good for everyone! A Russell Farm volunteer brought 5 gallon buckets to be used in our October junior gardener classes. Biodegradable egg cartons can be used for starting seedlings and for art projects. One of our chickens was worried we were expecting her to lay that many eggs!

Due to the large amount of interest in our Homeschool Classes, we have lowered the prices to accommodate families with multiple children. 😃 The rates have been reduced to $20 for a 5 week course (per student). We have also added classes to include a wider age range, from ages 5 to 18, and are even offering a Mnemonics class that will be available to adults interested in improving their memory skills. Look at our new flyer to see all the exciting changes we have made.
