Lebanon, CT (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
The farm families of The Farmer’s Cow are celebrating The Last Green Valley’s Walktober 2013 with events at three of its member farms. At each event, visitors will be able to tour these Connecticut farms, meet the farmers, see the cattle and sample some of The Farmer’s Cow fresh local products. Visitors can try the newest item in the dairy case, Chocolate Milk, this season’s crop of Fresh Apple Cider, and The Farmer’s Cow Ice Cream featuring Farmland Crunch, which was created as a tasty way to support farmland preservation efforts in Connecticut.
“The Farmer’s Cow farm tours are a great opportunity to visit the farms that make the milk and learn about agriculture in Connecticut,” says Robin Chesmer, managing member of The Farmer’s Cow. “We want people to visit our family farms and experience first-hand what local agriculture is all about.”
The Farmer’s Cow farms are all family-owned dairy farms that take great pride in what they do and share a common commitment to sustainable agriculture. When consumers buy The Farmer’s Cow milk and locally produced products, they are supporting local farmers who work the land through the seasons and are helping to maintain Connecticut’s unique rural New England flavor.
All farm tour events are free and no reservation is required. Directions to the farms are available on The Farmer’s Cow website at http://www.TheFarmersCow.com. For more information call 866‐355‐COWS or email farmers(at)TheFarmersCow(dot)com.
