Mrs. Barb Helton

My husband Bill, and I own Circle H Ranch in Vinemont.  On our farm, we raise and sell Limousin, Lim-flex, Angus, and Wagyu (Kobe beef) cattle....and a few chickens!  We also sell beef and fresh chicken eggs to the public. One of the things I have learned from living on a farm is that animals must be fed and checked daily regardless of the weather.  I have 2 married daughter's and one grandson.

I have a passion for the outdoor classroom at Crestline.  My desire is for all students to explore nature and to see the beauty and necessity of taking care of our Earth.  It is important for my students to know where their food comes from.  Ag in the Classroom will be a major component in my curriculum.  Bringing farmers from the community into my classroom allows students to hear and see various aspects of agriculture.  I absoutely love what I do here at CES!

I am a member of First Bible Church in Decatur where I am active in the Titus 2 Ladies Ministry.
