Educational Farm Tours

"If thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to
understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for
understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid
treasures;Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord,
and find the knowledge of God."

Proverbs 2: 2- 5
