    One of my favorite fall memories from growing up is going to pumpkin patches and apple orchards. My family loved stuff like that. We even went to a Christmas tree farm one time and cut our own tree. That actually didn’t turn out so well. That was the year Dad bought an artificial tree after..

    Today is National Teach Ag Day–a day to celebrate all the agriculture teachers in schools and universities around the country.
