Debbie Miller August 10, 2015

Learning about the fuel our bodies use not only makes your team healthier, it can be fun too. It’s an ideal way for team members to learn something new and perhaps even inspire them. A few options for your experience include…

A.Team in the Kitchen – Using the team concept, prepare one of 5 meals using different local food concepts

B.Healthy Cooking with Herbs Class – Take health and wellness to a new level by learning about herbs that can improve your health

C.Not Ole McDonald had a Farm: Farm Professionals Experience – Visit and chat with actual farmers to inspire dialogue. See the actual new usage and implementation of the concepts in a hands-on experience. Visit a Pheasant Farm (Top F1 Bird producer in Ohio), a Dairy Farm (3,000 cows plus milked 3 times per day) or a Pig Farm (largest independent, single-family pig farm east of the Mississippi). There’s also a high production farm experience available where you can see how they apply today’s high technology while you share ideas for your industry
