Tools for Dairy Farmers

IMG_3159You have a great story to tell! Let Discover Dairy help you share that story with local schools and other community groups through school visits and farm tours. Planning a farm tour can take a lot of preparation and thought. However, it can create a dramatic and life-lasting impact on those who visit your farm. To help you prepare for your farm tour, Discover Dairy offers several resources:

  • Visit our “Farm Tour Plan” page to download a farm tour planning guide and checklist to use in preparing to share your story. You can also request a printed copy of the tour guide at no cost from that page.
  • Find additional resources, including a Discover Dairy Activity Page black and white master that can be printed and tips from other farmers who have planned farm tours. We also offer a pre-tour lesson for early elementary students.
  • Sign up to be a volunteer. Discover Dairy has teachers contact us periodically to request farms to visit or farmers to visit them. If you’re interested in helping out, click here.

For additional ways you can help in sharing the dairy story, we encourage you to visit Dairy Spot in the Mid-Atlantic region or contact your local Dairy Checkoff-funded program.
