Apple Crunch Day Virtual Farm Is Tour Oct. 21
By Amy Belcher
Commissioner of Agriculture and Industries Rick Pate and State Superintendent of Education Dr. Eric Mackey will host a Facebook Live Event celebrating the 4th annual “Apple Crunch Day” Oct. 21 at 11 a.m.
While Pate and Mackey will be at Airport Road Intermediate School (384 Blackmon Farm Lane, Coosada, AL 36020), schools across the state can show their support for fresh, local produce by tuning in to the video.
This year, the department is also offering a virtual farm tour of Scott’s Orchard available at alabamafarmtoschool.org. Students will be able to “ride along” with Pate and Mackey for an informative and educational look into how their farm works. Students will learn about the different varieties of apples, how they grow and more.
