More than 50 children at the rauhenebrach elementary school took advantage of the opportunity to spend the day at school, which is not actually a school day.
This time, the demand association of the elementary school has come up with something very special. While up to now various activities have always been held in the rooms of the school, this time they went from the school to the farm of daniela and ewald pfuhlmann.
A calf is born
The two of them run one of three full-time farms in untersteinbach and here the children were able to experience the whole variety of agriculture at first hand. The milking began. As ordered in the night to wednesday even a calf came to the world, to which the hearts of the children naturally flew to.
They were allowed to help feed the calves in the barn and press apple juice. Direct contact was made on the farm with horses and pigs, the pigeons in the loft, the guinea pigs, rabbits and the two farm dogs, who watched the whole event calmly. Naturally, farmer ewald pfuhlmann also explained the various machines that are used on a farm, while norbert ebert from koppenwind drove the children in groups with his horse-drawn carriage through the village.
With fond memories and a little tired from the day on the farm, the children returned to school for lunch, where spaghetti was served. The boys and girls found it tasty and were happy about an eventful day, which they had to thank the school's forderverein (a club that supports the milking of apples).
