AZFB AITC is excited to offer a variety of Virtual Ag Tours to introduce you and your students to Arizona's $23.3 billion ag industry. Whether we are learning about bees, cattle, cacti, produce, cotton, or other crops you will see that our Arizona farmers and ranchers are dedicated to their animals, the land, and to working hard every day to produce the Worlds' food and fiber! Each tour lasts approximately 45-55 minutes. Tours will continue through the 2023-2024 School Year. Be sure to follow us on social media to be the first to get the information on upcoming tours to join us live. All tours will be loaded here after the live tour.
