The second annual Farm day was held Saturday at the Greenup County Fair Grounds for area students with disabilities.
The camp was originally scheduled for April 28th but was rescheduled due to weather.
According to promotional information, Farm Day was developed to give students with disabilities and their families a hands on opportunity to experience what life on the farm might be like.
“This is a day for kids to come and pet animals that are raised on a farm,” Frank Potter camp organizer said. “The whole community has volunteered to pitch in and help us with this, so kids could experience farm life.”
He said last year’s Farm Day had 300 participants three states participating.
Potter said throughout the day the kids got to take rides on a horse and buggy, pet animals and learn how to plant seeds.
He said all of the activities of the day was offered free of charge.
