Today, several hundred children received an up close look at where their family's meals come from. It doesn't magically appear on a grocery store's shelf, but instead is grown or raised on a farm. The Coffee County Extension office held its annual petting zoo for pre-school and kindergartners from several school districts including Enterprise, Elba, and Coffee County. The two-day event is a prelude to this year's farm-city week which will be held in November. There are cows, horses, and a course the baby chicks. Organizers say it may seem strange, but many of the children have never stepped foot on a farm and have no idea about the food chain. Besides the public schools, home school as well as those enrolled in private learning facilities had a chance to participate in the petting zoo.
