Students in preschool at Sterling Elementary and Standish Elementary visited Hagley Farms in Omer April 24, where they had the chance to see farm machinery and animals up close. Children helped feed calves and chickens, assisted in grinding up feed and got a chance to sit inside a tractor. Approximately 24 students visited the farm, along with their teachers and chaperones.
