ELVERSON, PA — Consumers will have the opportunity to visit a local dairy farm without ever leaving the couch. Chester County’s Kurtland Farm is the next stop on American Dairy Association North East’s “Fun on the Farm” series, airing on Facebook Saturday, October 31 at 10 a.m.
This week, dairy farmer Jared Kurtz will highlight the role technology plays on his family’s farm — Kurtland Farm — including how new technology helps farmers with daily operations including feeding, milking and overall improving the quality of care for their cows.
“We’re excited for the opportunity for families to visit our farm virtually and learn about all the technology we use, like our robotic milking machines,” said dairy farmer Jared Kurtz. “We look forward to the day when we will be able to welcome visitors back onto our farm.”
This is the second season for the popular “Fun on the Farm” series, which launched in March. More than a dozen dairy farms throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland have hosted these virtual tours, with topics ranging from sustainability practices and technology on the farm to animal care, among others.
Next up is a lesson on nutrition with registered dietitian Abbey Copenhaver. Past dairy farms featured have included Mapleview Dairy in Madrid, NY, Barbland Dairy in Fabius, NY, Dry Creek Farm in Martinsburg, PA. and Reinford Farms in Mifflintown, PA.
