Education

Farm to Fork

Northeast Harvest sponsors a class for local student in Essex and Middlesex counties  to learn where their food comes from during the Topsfield Fair. The class begins with a discussion about where your food comes from. Our goal is to teach our youth that all food comes from plants or animals, that food has to be farmed, caught or grown at home and that food is changed from farm to fork. Students test their knowledge of  dinner table classics with the Farm to Fork Challenge activity.  This class is  concluded by thanking our local farmers by having the student make a card that we distribute to our farmers in Essex and Middlesex counties!
