10 Great Virtual Farm Trips to Watch with Students

While an actual in-person trip to a farm is hard to swing these days, we at have been producing LIVE Virtual Farm Trips for years, allowing farmers to open their barn doors to students to show exactly how they go about their daily lives, answering questions directly and providing opportunities that are as close as one can get without actually stepping foot on the farm.

We recently combed through our archives to find 10 Great Virtual Farm Trips for Classrooms to Watch that showcase the variety of agriculture in our country and highlight fantastic farmers doing some amazing work. We hope you’ll take time for your students to enjoy a Virtual Farm Trip below!
