As spring planting season begins, Oklahoma Farm Bureau is launching a unique website to track the weekly events of four Oklahoma farm families throughout the growing season.
The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Harvest Watch blog website will feature regular updates from the farmers as they experience the everyday joys and disappointments of planting and harvesting a crop. Updates will continue through the fall and conclude with harvest.
The four farm families each represent a different region of Oklahoma and include Zac and Amy Harris, Hobart; Brandon and Carrie Webb, Canton; Kenneth and Debby Fisher, Bristow; and Greg and Mary Leonard, Afton.
"We encourage teachers and their students to follow the regular updates on the website as a way to learn more about our modern agriculture production," said Mike Spradling, Oklahoma Farm Bureau president.
In addition to school children, the news media and general public also are invited to join the farm families on their journey through the 2012 growing season. To read the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Harvest Watch blog, see a link from the OFB website at www.okfarmbureau.org.
