Ever wonder where your food comes from? A group of students fromKendall College, a professional culinary arts school, can answer that question a little better after spending some time at the SIUC University FarmsDr. Silvia Smith, Assistant Professor of Food and Nutrition, arranged the details of the visit. Students spent a series of four days learning about life on the farm, food production and food processing. Students were able to get their hands "dirty" milking cows, assisting with grape harvest, and learning about topics such as fertilizer and livestock insemination.
