VBC Farm Bureau volunteers and a FCCLA teacher & students having fun at the Kiddie Barnyard at the Van Buren County Fair. During Thursday and Friday, over 500 students came on field trips and they learned first hand about doing chores on a farm. (Gathering eggs, digging for potatoes, exercising the horse, milking the cow, picking corn, watering the ducks , roping a steer, even fishing for their dinner and much more)! Since Rice is Arkansas’ #1 Commodity (we are #1 rice producer in the nation) we had an educational display and “milled” some rice.
