Jackson County 4-H Ag Adventures Program

Cindy Eade was able to keep the attention of 400 1st graders by introducing them to one of Cindale Farm’s dairy cows at the Jackson County 4-H Ag Adventures Program. The co-owner and operator of this 460-acre dairy, located just outside the Panhandle city of Marianna, is a former elementary education teacher with the ability to communicate her love of farming to these youngsters.
The event is held each November, and is designed to teach students about the science of agriculture and what it means to our communities, county and state. The program also fosters an appreciation of how the science of agriculture touches the everyday lives of all Floridians.
Students visited 12 different agriculture-related stations that day. Not only did they learn about dairy cows, but they also received demonstrations on honey production, composting, corn grinding, peanut production, livestock production and much more.
