Take an educational tour through Delaware Valley College’s farm areas! See what’s growing while listening about how fruits and vegetables are grown, harvested and marketed, and why local farming is more important than ever! In addition, you will be guided through the farm animal section of the Del Val Campus. You will see horses, cows, pigs, sheep and other familiar farm animals while learning how these animals are an important aspect of agriculture. In this school tour, children and adults alike will learn the importance of local farming, food production and respect for nature. At the end of our tour, we will be able to pick a seasonal crop. Don’t forget to visit the Market store before you go home. It’s one of my favorite places to shop!
