KyCorn invested nearly $150,000 in a student and public education project they called the Kentucky Farms Feed Me Virtual Field Trip Series ten years ago. The series of agriculture-focused videos has been used by hundreds of teachers and agriculture educators across the Commonwealth.
In 2015, KyCorn allowed Kentucky Ag and Environment in the Classroom (KyAEC) to add standards-based lessons and continue to share it with teachers through workshops.
Work began in 2018, thanks to the support from many more commodity and farm organizations, to update the video field trips. With the video production expertise of Kentucky Farm Bureau, 10 new videos were created, and KyAEC relaunched the program in a series of teacher workshops this summer.
KyCorn wants to thank Kentucky’s farm community for continuing this project that is educating the next generation of consumers.
