The Oregon FFA Chapter hosted its 20th Foods For America program at the farm of Dee and Wayne Ace.

Brooklyn Elementary School fourth graders came to the farm where staff presented about the basic care of farm animals and plants. The students also made cheese, which they were able to take back to their classrooms.

“Students, along with the teachers, love coming to the farm,” Dee told the Observer about the event.
