Stuck at Home? Virtual Farm Tours Allow Kids to Visit Dairy Farms Without Leaving Home

Stuck at Home? Virtual Farm Tours Allow Kids to Visit Dairy Farms Without Leaving Home
American Dairy Association North East offers educational online tours for all ages provide learning opportunities from home

While school closures continue and millions of kids are stuck at home, dairy farmers share a unique opportunity to visit a farm without leaving the couch.

Virtual Farm Tours, produced by American Dairy Association North East (ADANE), are available for children in grades Pre K – 12 and use video technology to connect children to dairy farms and the farmers who own and operate them.

From the milk in their cereal to the cheese on their pizza, most kids don’t know where their food comes from or how it is produced.

Last fall, three virtual tours were filmed at Dutch Hollow Farm in Schodack Landing, N.Y., Will-O-Crest Dairy in Clifton Springs, N.Y., and JoBo Holsteins in Gettysburg, PA, to educate kids on agriculture, animal care and sustainability. Additional Virtual Farm Tours can also be found on ADANE’s YouTube page.
