Virtual Farm Tours
Taking your class on a tour of a real dairy farm isn’t always an option. That’s why we started our Virtual Farm Tour program. Kids of all ages can watch grade level appropriate dairy farm tours without leaving their classroom.
When new, live tour dates are announced, we’ll add them here. For now, enjoy some of our past virtual dairy farm tours.

American Dairy Association North East also supports dairy education programs created by the Pennsylvania Center for Dairy Excellence. Discover Dairy is an engaging, interactive, multi-leveled educational lesson series that meets Common CORE Standards for math, science and Reading while incorporating social studies. These show upper elementary and middle school students where milk comes from and how dairy farmers contribute to our world.
