Nelson Ag Academy is providing a virtual ag education

While the pandemic has highlighted the need to secure a robust food supply chain, it has also underscored the value of online learning.

Nelson Ag Academy has been working to fill the void by providing virtual ag education to young adults.

High school junior Michaela Estes speaks with RFD-TV’s own Tammi Arender on her experience in the program, the main areas of study, and her career plans.

“I chose to use this program because there wasn’t really any other agriculture related schooling that I could get in my area. My family travels a lot for business and so I couldn’t join any full-time groups like FFA,” she explains.
