The U.S. continues to become a more urbanized society, and youth growing up today have little knowledge about farming or how food products are produced and processed. With only two percent of our population participating in agricultural production, the average American is five generations away from "firsthand" experience with farming (Smith, 1998). The objective of the 4-H Virtual Farm is to provide youth with an opportunity to learn basic agricultural concepts.
