Posted On: Wednesday, February 07, 2018

South Habersham Middle School eighth grade students in Mrs. Shelly McQuaig’s agriculture class use the Farmers2050 app to learn all about running a farm.  Students must take out a loan, purchase the farm and equipment, and plant crops all while keeping track of what they spend and earn in their record books.  Furthermore, students learn about farm safety, environmental protection measures, and how to achieve more productive crops utilizing this iPad app.  Pictured from left to right are Jose Villagomez, Brandon Whitfield, and Ashton Eisel recording earnings from their virtual farms.
