Foundation Agriculture Immersion Lab
Farm to Families Immersion Lab powered by GIANT Ribbon Cutting
Ever wonder where your food comes from? Have you ever stopped to think about the science and knowledge that goes into growing and raising the peppers in your salad or the beef in your burger? Find out the answers to these questions and more in the Foundation Agriculture Immersion Lab!
The PA Farms to Families Immersion Lab powered by GIANT, supported by the Pennsylvania Friends of Agriculture Foundation and Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, allows guests to learn about PA farms, discover environmental considerations to impact food production, experience riding on a tractor through a VR corn field, quiz yourself to see how well you know common fruits and vegetables, practice building a balanced meal with Pennsylvania-grown foods and learn about the community it takes to bring food from the field to the plate for PA families.
All these activities and more are waiting for you inside the Pennsylvania Friends of Agriculture’s new exhibit trailer! You can explore Pennsylvania’s agriculture through hands-on activities, creative exhibits, and fun games. It’s our latest tool to help Connect Families for a Better Future through agriculture and education.
