LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) -- Two sisters in central Kansas have turned their family farm into a classroom aimed at helping urban and in some cases rural students learn where their food comes from.

Laura Mourn and Angie Flippo spent much of their childhood on their family's farm south of Lindsborg, property that has been in the family for more than 100 years.

They told the Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/18sI0TM ) the seeds they are planting are designed to clear up misconceptions among students who have little idea of how food gets from the field to the store to their tables.

The program is an offshoot of tours conducted by the sisters' parents on the farm. Teachers began asking for educational programs to explain to children why farms are important.
