What is a Virtual Farm Tour?

Our Virtual Farm Tours transport you digitally to a real dairy farm with the farmer as your LIVE guide! It’s so easy to join us—you can use a Zoom Link, Facebook Live Link or YouTube Link. You will see behind the scenes; including where cows are milked, inside the barns, and tractors at work. Discover how local dairy farmers care for their cows, communities, and the environment to produce the milk that makes up your favorite dairy products!

Fun on the Farm Facebook Series

American Dairy Association North East created the “Fun on the Farm” video series, where we partnered with different farmers who covered topics like cow and calf care, cow nutrition, milking procedures, and even cooking with dairy. The series is geared toward grades Pre-K – 3, and each episode is 15 minutes or less.
