Farm School in Warren County

ALVATON, Ky. – It’s a slice of the farm life for kids who might not get to see a cow every day.

Emily Rock, a small time farmer has started up a “farm school” to let kids get some firsthand knowledge on how a farm works . It’s a way to both help out the community and share some of her childhood with kids, combining 2 loves of hers.

It’s been something she’s wanted to do for a couple of years now and with her husband supporting her, who also comes from a farm background, things are slowly taking off. With 85 acres of land now, Royalty Rock Farm has a host of chickens, pigs and cows that the Rocks tend to day in and day out.

Emily not only educates children on her farm but also takes the fruits of their labor and puts it to use in the kitchen, making her own butter and milk that the kids get to try as part of class. Emily said she wants kids to know where their food comes from, and with the school hopes that kids get to make some memories that will stick around for a lifetime just like hers.

If parents want to get some more information on how to go about enrolling, Emily told News 40 that the Royalty Rock Farm Facebook page would be a good way to answer any questions they had.
