Join us for an informative workshop and gain knowledge and resources while you explore a North Carolina tobacco farm in Harnett County. This workshop offers classroom-ready activities and lesson plans aligned directly to the Common Core and State Essential standards. It will focus on several unique aspects of agriculture with exploration of cotton, tobacco, wheat, soybean and corn production. Teachers will leave better prepared to educate students and to help them understand the sources of their food and fiber native to their local school district. Byrd Farms began in the early 1900s. James Michael Byrd is a seventh generation farmer, and farms alongside his parents, R.H. and Sherrie. R.H.’s grandfather served on the National Cotton Council in the early 1900s, and would travel to Europe to participate in commodity trading! This venue will set the stage for a real-world North Carolina Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom experience thanks to our members from Harnett County Farm Bureau.
