Montgomery County High School is serving beef for lunch from student raised and locally processed cows.
It's part of the national Farm to Schools initiative where schools serve food grown by local farmers.
It is a collaborative effort between the school district, the department of agriculture, and FFA.
FFA members actually toured the farm where they processed their meat to see the final stages of the process.
Beef is one of nearly half a dozen local products being served in the cafeteria.
The school started serving locally-grown apples in 2006 and recently added organic lettuce.
