Pals kids get an up-close look at life on a Kandiyohi farm


At least for one day, 41 youth from the New London-Spicer summer Pals day care program on Thursday got to experience life on the farm. With the help of the school's FFA students, the K-5 grade kids learned about agriculture -- both past and present -- on the Jerome and Kristine Bengtson dairy farm in rural Kandiyohi.

"We enjoy seeing the kids enjoy themselves," said Kristine Bengtson. "They get to see what it's like to live in a whole different world than living in town."
