Flat Aggie


The Flat Aggie project is a unique way to introduce how food is produced to classrooms far from farms.  I work with teachers to find farmers that send pictures and reports on what is going on their farm currently.

Check out the Introduction to Flat Aggie for lots of information for teachers, farmers who are Flat Aggie's Tour Guides, and for individuals who would like to organize their own Flat Aggie Adventures.  To read more about her adventures, just click on one of the states and it will take you to the post my farmer friends sent back to the class along with pictures taken with Flat Aggie.

The Flat Aggie's have their own Facebook page!  Be sure to follow it to see sneak peak pictures before the reports are published.

The Original Flat Aggie

 You can see more adventures of Flat Aggie on The House that Ag Built.  I actually totally stole the idea from her, but she said it was okay.

If you are interested in hosting Flat Aggie as a farmer or are a teacher who would like help finding farmers to host Flat Aggie, feel free to contact me on my contact page and I will help you in any way I can.
