HOME EC STUDENTS TOUR LOCAL FARM OPERATION
Today, the grade 10 Home Ec. class had the opportunity to visit the nearby farm of Gord and Belinda Wilson. They raise chickens, pigs and geese in order to provide healthy, natural meats for their family. Our students got a tour of the farm today, and took part in the daily feeding chores of the animals. The animals are fed a variety of fresh foods, including leftover produce from local grocery stores. The pigs also love drinking milk! We also walked over to the neighbours’ to check out their laying hens, and were told about the differences between the two types of chickens. A big thank you to Gord and Belinda for showing us around!
