Shay Elliott, 6, bites into an heirloom tomato last week during a field trip to Dickey Farms sponsored by Apple Seeds Inc. Forty-eight children toured the farm with volunteers, learning about a variety of fruits and vegetables, where they come from and the fact many of the foods they are served in their school lunches come from this farm.

Natalie Freeman offered young children a taste of a fresh tomato Wednesday. Josh looked scared. Brooklyn played with her piece. Madyson refused to try it. Zac also declined the invitation. “I’m not hungry. I had a big breakfast,” he proclaimed.
