    This is part of the national "Ag in the Classroom" program and is sponsored by local agriculture organizations. Farm Field Day gives students an opportunity to see a well-managed farm as well as specific demonstrations on dairy, soil erosion, embryology, beef, pork, sheep, and farm production. The purpose behind this project is to help children understand where food comes from; and thus, the importance of agriculture in our society. Farm Field Day is open to any third grade class in Salt Lake County and each year over 2,000 students are educated about agriculture at Butterfield Farm using a hands-on approach.  

     

    Here is a glimpse of what you can expect when you visit the farm.
