GREENFORD- Now a 15 year tradition, Ag Camp still thrives with excited campers to learn about agriculture and where there food comes from. Ag Camp was a brainstorm developed by camp coordinator, Kimberly Moff, to promote agriculture and remind children where their food truly comes from- down on the farm. Children in grades kindergarten through sixth grade spend three days learning about how food grows, the importance of farm animals and even how to prepare their own food for a family picnic. Ag Camp is planned and organized by the Mahoning County Youth Agricultural Association and the Mahoning County Junior Fair Board. The camp is co-sponsored by Agland Coop and Witmer's Feed and Grain so the campers can take home t-shirts, crafts, game prizes and more.
