On September 24-25, Cedarock Park welcomed approximately 900 area students for the annual Farm-to-Table Program. This event is sponsored by the Alamance County Agri-Business Committee and is a unique opportunity for students to learn about agriculture in Alamance County at no charge to the students. 4th-graders from all over Alamance County came to Cedarock Park for two days to learn first hand about how food is grown and produced on a farm and ultimately brought to the family table. Students toured the historical farm and learned about farm animals, plants, and farming equipment. They heard from industry professionals in nine different stations representing various areas of agriculture including dairy, poultry, farm technology, beekeeping, forestry products, beef cattle, field crops, soil and water conservation, and plant science.
