Orange HS hosts annual Farm Fest
ORANGE HIGH SCHOOL FARM FEST returns this Saturday
For the most part Orange County’s agriculture days are long gone. One notable exception in the Metro Area of Orange County is right here in Orange at Orange High School. One of Orange High’s many unique programs is its Future Farmers of America and the farm they operate right on campus in the middle of Orange.
This Saturday Orange High School’s Future Farmers of America will open up their farm to the public in the annual Orange High School Farm Fest.
Fun for the whole family, you can get your fill of farm fun with a petting zoo, food, games, prizes and lots of farm animals. Orange High students have been raising sheep, pigs, and cattle and more on their own farm and every year invite the public to come and have a look.
This year, in addition to the cows, sheep, lamas, and mini-horses, there is Norman. Norman is the farm’s new mini-steer. Norman was purchased with funds donated by the Orange Home Grown Farmer’s Market. Orange Home Grown operates the Orange Home Grown Farmers and Artisans Market every Saturday from 9 am-1 pm. at Chapman University’s Historic Villa Park Orchards Packinghouse lot at the corner of Cypress Ave. and Palm Ave. in Old Towne Orange.
This year’s Farm Fest is Saturday May 11, 2013 from 12 noon-4:00 p.m.
The Orange High School Farm is located at the corners of Walnut, Shaffer and Harwood at Orange High. Cost is only $3.00 or $5.00 for admission and lunch, with funds going directly to support the OHS Future Farmers of America.
