Hometown Focus // Hornsby Farms

This week I am really excited to share with you one of the coolest businesses I have encountered. When I was at Auburn, I was an Agriculture major and actually received a minor in Fruit and Vegetable production, so farms are my favorite businesses. While I was in school, one of my classes took a field trip to Hornsby Farms. After our visit, we decided to do a community service project where our class helped out at the farm. We split into groups and each group helped with different things such as delivery help, planting and picking weeds, and my group helped Beth make some jam!

I understand that everyone is different and am thankful that I live in a country where I can share my opinion, even if it opposes another. So thats exactly what I’m going to do.
