An Out of this World Adventure!

What’s your favorite part of Fair Oaks Farms? Is it the Birthing Barn, where you can witness the miracle of life right before your eyes? Is it the Dairy Parlor, where you can see exactly where your milk, ice cream and butter, comes from? Or is it the Crop Adventure, where you get to learn how technology and the innovations of tomorrow are impacting farming? If it’s the last one, we’ve got an exclusive experience just for you!

Drones are becoming a vital part of farming in today’s agriculture. Tom Nichol from AgEagle describes the benefit of drones by saying, “The biggest thing we provide to farmers is a chance to have an overall view of their field like they are a personal airplane.” It can be incredibly beneficial to view all of your fields and inspect your crops from a bird’s eye view, especially if you own a lot of land!

For a limited time at Fair Oaks Farms, we’ll be offering a Drone workshop to schools and groups that will explain farmers use drones and satellites to improve their farming efforts! In the workshop, you’ll be able to participate in a range of activities that include flying drones and using satellites to help with communication.

If you’re a group that is interested in booking, contact Lisa Roozee at (219) 394-2025, extension 322, or email at lisar@fofarms.com.
