Students will also go on a Meet the Breeds Tour, concentrating on the heritage breeds of animals found on the plantation, and participate in hands-on activities including rice processing, corn grinding, and butter churning. Admission is $10 per student and per chaperon. Please RSVP to Greg Smith, Director of Education, Middleton Place Foundation at gsmith@middletonplace.org .
