Happy #NationalAgDay! Agriculture is a rich part of Maryland’s history, and continues to be recognized as the #1 industry in the state. Maryland is home to more than 12,000 farms, occupying over 2 million acres of farmland across 23 counties.
‍‍‍‍‍‍ ‍‍
The agriculture, forestry, and agriculture-support sectors employ a total of 45,600 workers, with 28,753 workers directly involved in the industry. A strong agriculture sector fuels jobs in the business services, retail, leisure, and transportation industries. #FBDoesAgWeek

What a wonderful day! We worked with the Charles County Farm Bureau, and Dr. Higdon Elementary school to do a " Ag in the classroom " day today! We brought our calf, lambs, and baby goat to show the kids. We also helped with activities such as a mock " cow milking" . It was so much fun! Thank you Lisa Bowling Barrett for helping to make it happen! Thank you Sheila Hancock, Amanda Rae Davis, Georgia Bowling, and Lilly Collins for helping with the awesome activities! So much fun!!!
