WHAT IS AN

AG HOST?

An Ag Host is a producer or agribusiness who hosts K-12 students on-site or virtually.  They increase students' knowledge about an industry and its careers, help peak students' interests and provide a meaningful connection to agriculture.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Open communication with an Educator to provide a meaningful experience for their students
  • Sharing engaging stories and activities about agriculture with students
  • Ensuring a safe environment for students at the farm/agribusiness

HOW DOES FARM CAMP

HELP YOU?

Farm Camp works with Educators and Ag Hosts (agricultural producers) to create a dynamic hands-on experience for students.

Think of Farm Camp as your partner to help you share your mission with students and Educators across the state of Minnesota.

We believe a successful tour comes together through preparation. Farm Camp takes the stress out of planning an agricultural tour by:

  • supplying a checklist to help successfully coordinate the Farm Camp experience
  • assisting with the scheduling and content of the tour
  • providing print and video resources from seasoned educators with how to deliver content to varying age levels and subject areas
  • sharing strategies to best engage students and practicing with the Ag Hosts to deliver an interactive, meaningful tour
  • keeping clear, consistent communication between the Ag Host and Educator

Following your tour, Farm Camp provides a social media platform and a press release outline to help the Ag Host share their story and the success of the event locally and online.

Farm Camp aspires to have a digital presence to build awareness of the industry and the multitude of career opportunities available for our future workforce. Through sharing each individual Farm Camp experience, we will curate a larger, more impactful voice for agriculture.
