Farms Fun Facts

The average American may eat 125 pounds of potatoes each year but corn is actually America's number one field crop, providing ingredients for cereals, peanut butter, snack foods and soft drinks. Have your campers note the various ingredients in the food they eat.

The average person eats 68 quarts of popcorn a year alone! Have each camper keep a record of how much popcorn they eat during the camp season, or the total amount that their camp consumes.

Use a trip to an agricultural farm to find out about the benefits of eating local. Ask the farm staff to discuss the process from seed to market.
