ALBION – The Board of Education recognized Poverty Hill Farms as a Friend of Education at Monday’s board meeting.

Ed Neal and his grandson Brian Neal accepted the award on behalf of the entire family. Ed Neal is a former president of the Board of Education.

Adam Krenning spoke about the partnership that FFA has with Poverty Hill Farms.

“The Neal family has always been willing to assist our students in the agriculture programs at Albion with anything we have needed to make the program better for our students,” Krenning said.

Tim Archer thanked the farm family for always hosting his high school Interact exchange program with an inner city school in Rochester. He said the visit to the farm is always a highlight and giving students hands-on activities and experiences on the farm is one they will never forget.

Poverty Hill Farms on West County House Road has also hosted seniors from the Workplace Internship program. The Neal family is happy to educate students about careers in agriculture and give them hands-on experiences to determine if a life in agriculture is something they may want to pursue.

Thank you Neal family for your ongoing support and willingness to educate our students!
