OKOLONA, Miss. (WTVA) - Forget figuring out which came first — the chicken or the egg?
Local farmers will be satisfied if youngsters at least know the two are related.
Students from Okolona, Plantersville and Verona took a field trip to the Market in Okolona on Thursday as part of the annual Field Day.
They learned the origins of the food that ends up on their plates.
The Mississippi Minority Farmers Alliance, along with many other agencies, has been hosting some form of Field Days since 2016.
On Thursday, the students received a 2-hour tour of the farm, stopping at 14 different learning stations.
