Ag Education

The Erie County Agricultural Society continues its commitment to agriculture education into the school year with two FREE field trip opportunities for local students. Farm 2 Table and Little Sprouts are hands-on experiences that bring students face-to-face with various elements of agriculture and leave them with a greater understanding of the important role agriculture plays in each and every one of our  lives.
