Second Grade had a fun and exciting Farm Field Day field trip to Harward Farms. We learned all about how farmers and ranchers produce the food we eat.
Harward Farms was established in 1945 by Lenard and Hortense Harward in the west fields of Springville, Utah. Through hard work, they had a successful farm raising beef cattle and growing feed.
Today, Harward Farms has more than 2,000 acres of crop production growing and selling famous sweet corn, watermelon, tomatoes and more at 25 roadside stands and local grocery stores. Harward Farms Sweet Corn, Inc. also produces 150 acres of pumpkins, selling to national retailers and through Jaker’s Jack-O-Lanterns, a popular pumpkin patch, which operates annually in October.
Harward Farms’ mission is: “We are committed to growing high quality, fresh, local products from the fertile fields of Springville, Utah. Since 1985, our passion is for good farming, delicious, fresh, wholesome food, and family fun.”
Thank you Harward Farms for creating such a memorable day for our students.
