Welcome to the Butterball®
Celebrate Agriculture Page!
As the largest producer of turkey products in the United States, Butterball, LLC is dedicated to safe and responsible agriculture. We are working in communities like yours to promote awareness of the important role agriculture plays in American life.
This school year, Butterball has partnered with Weekly Reader to develop “Celebrate Agriculture” — a compelling set of classroom learning materials designed to educate children on agriculture and the socially responsible practices that lead to healthy animals, food and consumers. The program, designed for students in grades three through six, is aimed at providing fun, informative classroom activities that reinforce education standards and engage students in the learning process.
