Good Afternoon Students, Parents, and Community Members:
This week the commonwealth celebrated Massachusetts Agricultural Day at the State House! The agricultural industry including agricultural education students, flooded the state house to talk about the importance of agriculture in Massachusetts and make sure that our elected officials know that agriculture is alive and well in the Bay State and thank them for their tireless support!
