“Hosting the farm tour was a great experience and is a really convenient way to show what we do on the farm to a large group of students,” said Facer, who hosted the ADA North East tour for the first time.
Last week, more than 4,800 middle and high school students tuned in live to the tour at Stauffer Farms hosted by Adam Bates in North Lawrence, N.Y., and more than 9,200 elementary students virtually toured Mulligan Farm with Emilie Mulligan in Avon, N.Y.
