By visiting local farms, people can learn about different professions, ideas, and opportunities when they travel outside from their home. A field trip can awaken the desire to try new things and pursue previously unconsidered dreams. It can also introduce people to job opportunities and can spark new interests and passions. The increase of community interaction can help motivate especially young people such as students, to learn more about food production and food safety by facilitating community vegetable plots and gardens. Improve relationships with farmers and local community and sharing in agricultural heritage and rural lifestyle educates the importance of farming. The local farm visit can teach much more than students/pupils can learn in a classroom. By seeing real life application of the lessons that they are learning in school or college, they might be more likely to understand the importance and relevance of what they are learning. The local farm tour will not only expand their knowledge but will also encourage them to take small steps to protect the environment
