Chichester AgCom Delivers Agricultural Events To School


May 4th marked the second year Agricultural Commission (AgCom) members Catherine and John Snow have read to Chichester Central School (CCS) students.   The apple industry is an important part of New Hampshire agriculture.  This year NH Farm Bureau “Ag in the Classroom” agricultural literacy project featured the book How Do Apples Grow? by Betsy Maestr, Illustrated by Giulio Maestro.  Approximately 52 first, second and third graders attended the three readings.  Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Snow for offering their time and sharing a better understanding of the apple growing process with CCS students.


The Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix is an online, searchable, and standards-based curriculum map for K-12 teachers. The Matrix contextualizes national education standards in science, social studies, and nutrition education with relevant instructional resources linked to Common Core Standards.


A first for Chichester’s AgCom was to participation in “Ag Days” by bringing agricultural information and demonstrations to CCS on May 20.  More than 105 students visited with two prominent Chichester farmers.


Jeff Jordan brought two sheep and one goat as well as equipment and supplies to demonstrate how to shear sheep and long-haired goats, explaining different breeds, when and how often to shear and sell the wool.  Students had a chance to meet the animals, feel the texture of the wool’s “crimp” and its elasticity, as well as ask questions about marketing the wool.


Mr. Jordan raises about 100 head of sheep and a dozen or so goats on his farm; he has farmed since he was eight and is known throughout New England for his sheep shearing skills.  He is also a Chichester selectman and heavily involved in the NH Sheep & Wool Growers Association.  Thank you to Mr. Jordan for his time and sharing his knowledge with CCS students.


Deb and Randy Harris brought an observation hive (a sealed 5-frame hive), honey, beekeeping equipment and clothing, and a pollinator chart.  Students learned about the six-week life cycle of the honey bee, the difference between worker bees, drones and queens, the importance of pollination and that it takes 1,152 to travel 112,000 miles and visit 4.5 million flowers to make one pound of honey.  There were many good questions asked, Deb handed out honeybee related handouts to the students.  Also, “I Met a Farmer Today!” stickers donated by NH Farm Bureau. 


The Harris’ have 10 hives on their Golden Acres Honey Bee Farm which they sell out of their home and at events.  They were instrumental in founding the Capital Area Beekeepers Association (CABA) and continue to volunteer many hours in the club and bee school.  Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Harris for their time and sharing their honey bee knowledge with CCS students.


If interested in joining the AgCom and/or participate in its events, please contact us at [email protected] or come to a meeting, 3rd Wed of the month, Jan-Oct.
