Southern Door FFA brings farm to school

You were not seeing things if you saw a bunch of tractors turn into Southern Door High School on Friday. It was all part of the annual Drive Your Tractor to School Day and Animal Day the Southern Door FFA organizes. Elementary school classes enjoyed the September breeze and sunshine outside while FFA members shared their passion for agriculture and talked about their animals.

Junior Jorge Gonzalez got to drive a John Deere tractor from S&S Jerseyland Dairy to school and said it is one of his favorite days of the year.

Junior Abbi Williams brought her two goats, Grady and Billy, to school. She said it was great sharing the stories of her two goats and answering the students' questions.

The Door County Sheriff's Department ensured the tractors had the opportunity to cross the highway to get back home safely. Southern Door FFA Advisor Ann Glowacki says it is her students' favorite day of the year and thanks the farms like S&S Jerseyland Dairy and Kinnard Farms that allowed them to borrow a tractor for the day in the middle of the harvest season.
