The first of three Virtual Farm tours hosted by local dairy farmers this fall drew more than 17,000 students from 50 states on Friday, September 30, at Albano Farms in Stamford, N.Y. John and Chris Albano led the live tours.
The middle/high school session that focused on sustainable nutrition reached 2,927 students, and the elementary school session about how dairy fits into the day reached 14,519 students! “It was a great way to connect with a lot of students, and it was very free-flowing,” said Chris Albano.
The next set of tours available are:
- Friday, Oct. 14 – Kurtland Farms in Elverson, Pa.
- Monday, Nov. 21 – Adirondack Farms in Peru, N.Y.
