Kids Learn About Farming

kids learn about farmingEUGENE, Ore.– Kids got to try their hand at some basic farming skills Saturday as part of the Science Factory’s Farm Food Festival.

This festival gives kids the chance to make flour by hand, pet baby goats, and learn how to make cheese and butter. Kids also got the chance to learn about growing and preserving food with some pickling exhibits.

Organizers said it’s the perfect opportunity for the children to learn where their food comes from. “We’re┬álucky here in Eugene that people are in touch with nature a little bit more than other cities around the country, but even here not everybody has a backyard garden, not everyone has a farm nearby,” said Nick Spicher, Science Factory Education Director.

This is the fourth year The Science Factory hosted the festival.
