Farm Friday Fun with Arizona Ag allows parents and students the opportunity to learn about a new commodity each month. Parents can sign up by completing the online sign-up form HERE. Participants will receive a monthly email highlighting the commodity of the month with a fun fact sheet, a family farm or ranch highlight, and related lessons that can be done from home. Parents will also be provided with a PDF of the Fruit and Veggie Ag Mag and the Arizona Specialty Crops Ag Mag. This year's program will celebrate Arizona's agricultural heritage by partnering with the Arizona Farm and Ranch Experience to offer farm and ranch profiles from those who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
