A New Kind of Farm
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     If you had a farm, what would you grow? Would you grow potatoes? Would you grow grains like corn and wheat?
 
2     Would you grow fruit? Fruit farmers grow apples, peaches, and pears. These fruits grow hanging from branches, just waiting to be eaten or canned.
 
3     Some farms raise animals, too. Some keep one kind of animal like chickens, turkeys, cattle, or hogs.
 
4     Some farms raise horses. There are many kinds of horses. They come in many sizes and colors.
 
5     Some cows are raised for milk. Some cattle are raised for their meat. It is the same for goats.
 
6     Some farms even raise llamas, ostriches, and deer! Did you know there are also worm farms?
 
7     Worm farmers don't round up their worms the way ranchers round up cattle. Worms aren't sheared like sheep. We don't eat worms. Why are there worm farms?
 
8     Some worms are sold to bait shops. Fishermen can buy worms to bait their fish hooks. Maybe you know someone who gets worms that way.
 
9     Some people buy worms to put in their gardens. They know worms help make the soil better. They do this many ways.
