Tips for Planning a Farm to School Program

Connect with a Local Farmer

Help kids make the connection to where their food comes from by inviting a farmer to your site, planning a field trip to a farm, or visit a farmers’ market.  To get started, visit The Maryland’s Best website to locate a local farm and farmer.  If you would like to plan a field trip to a farmers’ market, visit Maryland’s Farmers’ Market Association to locate a market.
