Beech Hill Farm Hosts Military Family Farm Day

On Sunday September 17th, the UNH Cooperative Extension Military Youth and Family Program hosted a Military Family Farm Day at Beech Hill Farm, owned by a long-time 4-H connected farm family.

Military families had an opportunity to learn-by-doing while taking a personal look at the science behind agriculture. They tested the strength of eggshells, planted a terrarium to explore how plants grow, learned about and met some farm animals, had a dog training experience, wound their way through a corn maze, explored a rhododendron nature trail, and little ones played in a giant sand pile. Families also enjoyed sharing time with other Military families, eating their picnic lunches and yummy ice cream for dessert!
