Did you know that research shows when children experience the process it takes to grow their own food in the outdoors, they are much more likely to taste and enjoy it? Some have even been known to challenge their parents to try what they have grown.
That is why this year on Opening Day, October 10th, 2020, Fox Squirrel Corn Maze and one of our sponsors, the Hillsborough County Farm Bureau, will be hosting an Ag-venture for you and your children.
This Ag-Venture will allow you a “hands-on” learning experience and teach you about the importance of agriculture. The goal of Ag-Venture is to help children develop an understanding of where food comes from and the impact agriculture has in their daily life.
There will be six different stations and by visiting them, you’ll receive a mark in your passport. The stations at the Fox Squirrel Corn Maze will feature making butter, planting seeds, learning the water cycle, and much more. Once you’ve visited all 6 stations, you will be rewarded with an official Ag-Venture hat from the Hillsborough County Farm Bureau.
While this amazing adventure is included in the price of admission and everyone is welcome to experience it, the hats will be handed out on a first come first serve basis so make sure you arrive early enough.
We look forward to seeing you here on the ranch on October 10th, so you can take part of this experience and help your children develop a love for agriculture and those vegetables that can often be difficult to convince them to eat. But when they grow it themselves, they will be much more willing to give it a try.
