Carl Junction FFA Teaches 3rd Graders Where Food Comes From

Updated:

Third graders in Carl Junction got a lesson in where their food comes from today from the Carl Junction High School's Future Farmers of Americas. Over 250 students visited 21 stations in the annual Food for America event.

And despite all the adorable animals, Goodyear says it was actually the tractor exhibition that the kids enjoyed the most.
