North Dakota teachers learn about farming

Posted: Updated:

MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Some teachers from around the state spent part of their summer vacation learning about farming.

KXMC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/U9xvAM ) the state-sponsored Agriculture in the Classroom program provided tours on Tuesday of several farm operations in north-central North Dakota.

One stop was at the Nathan Fegley's farm. Fegley says it's interesting to hear the questions from teachers who may not have a lot of experience with farming.

The Agriculture in the Classroom program is designed to help students learn where their food comes from, and how to make healthy food choices.
