If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

American Dairy Association North East Special to Road Trips for Foodies
From American Dairy Association North East

While school closures continue and millions of kids are stuck at home, dairy farmers share a unique opportunity to visit a farm without leaving the couch.

Virtual Farm Tours, produced by American Dairy Association North East (ADANE), are available for children in grades Pre K – 12 and use video technology to connect children to dairy farms and the farmers who own and operate them.

From the milk in their cereal to the cheese on their pizza, most kids don’t know where their food comes from or how it is produced. Last fall, three virtual tours were filmed at Dutch Hollow Farm in Schodack Landing, N.Y., Will-O-Crest Dairy in Clifton Springs, N.Y., and JoBo Holsteins in Gettysburg, Pa., to educate kids on agriculture, animal care and sustainability.

For kids aged 4 to 9, watch our tour from Dutch Hollow Farm.

Kids aged 10-13 will enjoy our virtual tour from Will-O-Crest Farm.

High school kids can enjoy our tour from JoBo Holsteins Farm.

Additional Virtual Farm Tours can also be found on ADANE’s YouTube page.

For more educational materials, visit ADANE’s website to download lesson plans.

The American Dairy Association North East is one of 16 state and regional promotion organizations working under the umbrella of the United Dairy Industry Association. It is the local affiliate of the National Dairy Council®, which has been conducting nutrition education and nutrition research programs since 1915.
