Free FarmChat® Series Available for Classrooms!


Linn County Farm Bureau partnered with Buchanan, Delaware, and Scott County Farm Bureau to host a free summer FarmChat® Series.

FarmChat® is a unique program that utilizes technology (Skype, Facebook, FaceTime and other software platforms) to bring the farm experience directly to the community. The series is now available for teachers to utilize in their classrooms.

Families toured an alpaca farm, Cinnamon Ridge Dairy, Stacie’s Greenhouse and Nursery, Eagle’s Catch Tilapia, Lock and Dam 10, Florida Noble Tangerines, Timeless Prairie Apple Orchard, Bob’s Bees of Long Grove and Ryan Gibbs of Gibbsfield Ag LLC (drones).

Due to COVID-19, many schools are having to make tough decisions, but field trips don’t have to be canceled. FarmChat® is a great virtual alternative that still provides a new experience. Take the students on a tour of a farm or agriculture business without leaving the safety of the classroom.

View our pre-recorded FarmChat® list or schedule a LIVE FarmChat® by emailing mhibbs@ifbf.org
