THE FARM THEORY: 'MEAT FOR THOUGHT'
Tuesday's Blog Highlight: FARM Theory
The FARM Theory (Future of America Relies on ME) is a new college organization crafted from the minds of College of Agriculture Sciences and Natural Resources students at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
Their ultimate vision is to spread 'positive' messages of Agriculture and spark new conversations on their college campuses. Currently, there are three active FARM Theory groups on college campuses at UC Davis, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma State University.
