What to Expect
We offer two kinds of tours to engage students of all ages!
Virtual Farm Tour- Pre-K – Grade 5
The first is a general Virtual Farm Tour designed for students in Pre-K – Grade 5 that covers the three primary areas of the farm: where the calves live, where the cows live, and where the cows are milked. While exploring these areas of the farm, the tour guide also incorporates key curricula from our free lesson plans. Students will get an overview of where their favorite dairy foods come from while learning about how local farmer care for their animals and the land.
Dairy Deep Dive Tour- Grades 6-12
The second type of tour is a deeper look into a specific area of each farm designed for students in Grades 6-12 that will cover one or two locations on the farm covering that area in detail. These tours will often feature a specialist along with the farmer such as veterinarians, nutritionists, or environmental scientists. While exploring this area of the farm, the tour guide incorporates key curricula from our free lesson plans that meet classroom standards. Students will get a closer look at how farms use technology and experts to provide the highest care for animals and land.
