October is National Farm To School Month. Check back every Monday of the month for a post about how to incorporate agricultural themes into the classroom.

Below is a fact sheet about the agriculture in Indiana. As you read through the handout, remember that each fact and number represents families, farms and agribusiness throughout Indiana.
