MEDIA SET 2011 SPRING 4-H FARM TOUR
Each year, wide eyes and little hands look forward in May to their school’s trip to Green Acres Farm -- Delaware’s largest dairy farm located on Route 9 just outside Lewes (west of Route One/Coastal Hwy.) and home to the 25th Annual 4-H Spring Farm Tour. Typically, more than 1900 youth attend the event. Unaccustomed to farm aromas, children arrive holding their noses – but return to school with smiles on their faces after tasting freshly made ice cream from the Hopkins Dairy Creamery and seeing firsthand how a real Delaware dairy farm operates.

4-H educator Mary Argo is accompanied by her Extension colleagues and volunteers from local 4-H clubs and Sussex County Master Gardeners.
