Farm-to-Table Virtual Field Trips

Since 2012, the American Egg Board has partnered with Discovery Education to bring modern egg farms into today’s classrooms through an annual Virtual Farm Field Trip. Last year’s field trip to Pearl Valley Eggs in Pearl Valley, Illinois, was one of Discovery Education’s most popular field trips ever. Join America’s egg farmers in exploring their farms!
