BECAUSE IT’S IMPORTANT & BECAUSE THE RIVERSIDE FARMERS’ MARKET TOLD YOU TO
I’m Owen and I’m 8 years old. This past Saturday we went to Farmer Devon’s farm in LaGrange, IN. He is Amish. Once I saw Farmer Devon’s farm, I knew it would be very fun. It was really fun. They had a lot of activities for the kids and grown-ups to do. My favorite thing was the horse and buggy ride because I don’t know anyone else who has done that. I also liked the candy hunt. They hid candy under hay and we had to dig through the hay to find the candy.
I asked Farmer Devon some questions. Here they are:
Q: How many years have you been a farmer?
A: Five years.
Q: How’s the weather been? Has there been enough rain?
A: No. It’s been very dry lately.
Q: What’s the biggest plant you ever grew?
A: Last summer I grew a 6 ft tall tomato plant.
Q: What’s the easiest thing to grow?
A: Lettuce and radishes.
Q: What’s the hardest thing to grow?
It’s fun being on a farm because not many kids get a chance to do that. And, I like seeing where my food comes from. It would be nice to live on a farm. Farm life is interesting.
