School Field Trips to the Farm!
Our Dakin Dairy School Field Trip program is an educational and entertaining school field trip program and an excellent tool to help inspire your students thirst for learning about sustainability, nutrition, and agriculture.
Fun, Educational School Field Trips
Dakin Dairy’s School Field Trips allow for a transfer of knowledge that is not only fun but educational too! The student also learns about sustainable farming and the many benefits of fresh grass in our cows' diet. During the School Field Trip students learn how milk is produced; from the pastures and the milking parlour to the bottling room where they learn about the process of pasteurization and butterfat content. Students will also learn the importance of a "Fresh Grass" diet and its nutritional value for cows and humans. All this while gaining experience feeding the resident calves themselves to learn more about the diets of not only the bovines but of goats and sheep as well. We will also show the "Wonders of the Milking Way", a hands-on and exploratory tour about dairy farming, production, and bottling. Students will "Taste the Difference" by enjoying an ice cold glass of farm fresh milk produced and bottled right here on the farm!
Students love seeing where milk REALLY comes from, instead of the grocery store. Dakin Dairy’s School Field Trips are ideal for fun, educational school field trips. Book a School Field Trip for your class today!
