Students learn about agriculture in Coshocton County COSHOCTON - On March 20 the members of Coshocton County Youth Leadership participated in a program day to learn about industry and agriculture. We began our day at the Ridgewood General Store with some delicious doughnuts. After breakfast we traveled to Pearl Valley Cheese in Fresno. Th ere we were given a tour of the factory from Mr. G. He taught us about the history behind Pearl Valley Cheese and about the cheese making process. We were given some tasty cheese samples to enjoy on our trip to the Th omas Family Farm. At the farm, Mary Th omas spoke to us about the work she and her family does on their farm and how they care for all of their animals. After speaking with her we were able to take a look around the barn and meet the sheep. From the Th omas farm we traveled back to the Ridgewood General store where Samantha Priest Davis from the Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) taught us, through a hands on simulation about what happens to our streams, rivers, and other water supplies when we don’t take care of the environment. Next we heard from the owner of the store Mr. Jay Davis about the path that lead him to opening his business. He told us about the work that goes into owning his own business and the reward he receives from being able to do something he loves every day. We then enjoyed lunch provided by the General Store.
