Fair Oaks Grant Program
Illinois Pork Producers Association offers a grant program to provide an amazing once in a lifetime agricultural experience for fourth grade students.
Fair Oaks Farms, in Fair Oaks, Indiana, bring education and entertainment together, creating a unique field trip experience. Students will learn about pigs, the environment and sustainability. It's an escape to the country with acres of great outdoor fun, food and learning where students can explore family farms and reconnect with nature, animals and the planet.
Students start by touring the Pig Adventure (including the Pork Education Center) and have a birds-eye view of modern pig farming in all its stages. Then on to the new Crop Adventure where exhibits feature intriciate root systems, how weather affects our crops and amazing facts about plant life.
The deadline for Fall 2018 field trips has passed. Check back for a new application for Spring 2019.
