Corning High School gains new tool for teaching production farming
28 Jul 2020
CORNING — The Corning Union High School District over the summer completed the installation of a walnut orchard at Rodgers Ranch that will be used to teach students production agriculture.
Superintendent Jared Caylor said the district has a 177-acre ranch that it does various activities on, but for a long time there has been a desire to have some type of production agriculture there. The district wanted students to have the experience of learning and working on a functioning production orchard while generating revenue to develop the ranch further. The land exists somewhat outside of the district’s general budget.
