(KSL News) Some second-graders in Utah learned today that milk doesn't just come from a fridge.
They took class to the farm for some hands-on learning about agriculture.
They were able to get up close with a horse, see how dogs are trained to herd sheep and learned how farmers grow food.
And by the time they climbed back on the bus, the kids had a better idea about where their milk, meat and eggs really come from.
Neil Anderson, president Utah County Farm Bureau said, "We feel like it is an important opportunity to learn about agriculture, learn where their food comes from, and it all doesn't come from the grocery store."
More than 2,000 students have spent a day on the farm in Spanish Fork this week.
The farm bureau wants people to know agriculture remains an important Utah industry, even as fields give way to new houses.
