There’s nothing that speaks more to a third-grader’s heart than a big green John Deere tractor.

Third-graders from all over the Kittitas County stared in awe at a harvesting tractor as tall as a house and learned about farming culture at the 18th annual Elementary Agriculture Appreciation Day at the county fairgrounds in Ellensburg on Tuesday.

Agriculture Appreciation Day organizers see the annual event as an opportunity to help broaden the community’s understanding of the farming industry.
