What are your plans for your kids this summer? If you’re like me, you want them doing more than just laying around, eating everything they can find, and getting way too much screen time. If that sounds like you, Washington County 4-H has a couple of opportunities for kids this summer.

A trip to the Malloy’s Hickory Ridge Farms in Chipley will give you an inside look at the daily workings of a cattle operation.
