Indiana Pork and Indiana Soybean Partner with Fair Oaks

first_imgStatewide— Indiana Pork and the Indiana Soybean Alliance are excited to announce a partnership to allow more school-aged children to visit Fair Oaks Farms.  Both groups have partnered to provide discounts to school field trips and to provide transportation grants for their travel to and from Fair Oaks. “The partnership with Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Pork has made it possible for more educators and future generations to learn about modern agriculture and where food comes from,” said Julie Basich, Chief Operating Officer for Fair Oaks Farms. “Fair Oaks Farms is grateful for this opportunity and has worked hard to provide STEM programs that the educators not only feel good about, but are excited to share with their students and families.  Less than 2% of the population is involved in agriculture, so being able to make these discussions more accessible to our youth is crucial in bridging that gap.” The partnership allows a $3 discount for tours of Fair Oaks.  School groups can also apply for transportation grants to help with busing costs.last_img
