Farm to School Program: Fresh local beef for students
On April 11, the Klamath County School District sent 4,200 hamburgers to all its schools. The 700 pounds of meat to make those burgers came from Flying T Ranch in Sprague River, where Bruce Topham and his family have been raising specialized Salers cattle for more than 40 years.
This was a pilot project with the Farm to School program, and a partnership between the district, OSU Klamath Basin Research & Extension Center and Flying T Ranch.
Mr. Topham joined Stearns Elementary students for lunch on April 11, where he smiled, laughed and answered students’ questions about his ranch and his cattle. He even ate one of the hamburgers for lunch.
