Stephanie Fuller, from Fuller Farms, brought several farm animals to show Exeter elementary students last week to learn about the process of how and where food originates from and how it gets to the kitchen table. Fuller brought chickens, goats, ducks, a goose, rabbits, and honeycomb. The themed farm-to-store-to-table week culminated on Friday with a trip to Price Cutter for a tour. Contributed photo
