Kids had a chance to get a hands-on farm experience at the downtown Hy-Vee.

Local farmers parked their equipment, brought animals and led activities all to give children a better understanding of life on the farm.

"Now generations are getting further and further away from farms and it's so important to understand where your food is coming from so to have a communication and connection is really fun and important. It's a great opportunity for kids to learn," Guentzel Family Farmer Angela Guentzel said.
 
If you missed out on Touch-A-Tractor, coming up on August 11th from 7 a.m. to 11:30, Farm Bureau and Guentzel Family Farms will host Breakfast on the Farm, a free pancake breakfast where there will be lots of animals, farm activities and even more opportunities to learn about agriculture.
