MONTICELLO (WKOW) -- As children grow up generations removed from the agriculture industry, it's increasingly difficult for them to understand where their food comes from.
A group of kindergartners from Monticello learned a valuable lesson about where their food comes from, all thanks to the creative mind of author Angie Edge, who also works for Wisconsin Dairy Council.
Perhaps not surprisingly, most of the children did believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows. But that's about to change if Angie Edge has her way. Her new book, "A Farm of Many Colors," is helping kids learn all about farms and food.
Filled with colorful pages and great information for youngsters, the book is proving to be quite educational. The book not only teaches kids the colors found on a farm, but all the different colors of healthy foods they can eat.
Wisconsin's farms and agricultural businesses generate more than $59 billion in economic contributions into our economy every year and provide jobs for almost 354,000 people.
