Flat Aggie: About Specialty Crops

With each Flat Aggie report, I’ll be putting together a list additional resources, websites, recipes, books, and activities.  Use this and farmer math from A Kansas Farm Mom to bring Flat Aggie’s Agmazing Adventures to life!

Use with Flat Aggie visits Mt. Olive Pickle Co.

Classroom Materials

From Illinois Ag in the Classroom: Specialty Crop Ag Mags

From Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom: Harvest of the Month posters (scroll down to find cucumbers)

Mt. Olive products come in sweet, kosher, dill, relish, chips, spears, sandwich stuffers, etc. Serve plain pickles or this snack while learning more about cucumbers

Dill Pickle Bites

  • Dill pickle spears
  • Thinly sliced deli ham
  • Cream cheese

Spread cream cheese in a thin layer a slice of ham. Roll a spear in the ham and slice in 1” pieces. Secure ham with a toothpick if necessary. Tip: let cream cheese soften for easier spreading.
