If you can visit the farm, then you know it's real local milk!

Our farmers are proud to show everyone how we farm and care for our cows. We invite families to see first-hand what life is like on a working dairy farm and learn about how we are working to save Connecticut farmland and sustain farming as a way of life.

Lebanon, CT (PRWEB) January 23, 2014

The Farmer’s Cow announces its 2014 Farm Tour schedule and invites visitors to come out to the country and meet the farmer’s that bring you real local Connecticut milk and dairy products.

Locally sourced food is one of the hottest trends in the 2014 culinary forecast according to a recent survey by the National Restaurant Association. But what is local? The Farmer’s Cow milk comes from the contented cows of six real local Connecticut family-owned dairy farms, not from six other states. “Real local” means our farm fresh products get to you faster and that means greater nutritional value and a smaller carbon footprint. And, by purchasing The Farmer’s Cow, consumers are also helping to preserve precious Connecticut farmland, wildlife habitats and local communities.

“If you can visit the farm, then you know it’s real local,” said Robin Chesmer, Managing Member of The Farmer’s Cow.

“Our farmers are proud to show everyone how we farm and care for our cows that produce real local and delicious milk. We invite families to see first-hand what life is like on a working dairy farm and learn about how we are working to save Connecticut farmland and sustain farming as a way of life.”

The 2014 Farm Tour schedule includes events in every season – winter, spring, summer and fall. Each tour is unique and celebrates a different aspect of what it means to be “real local.” Visitors can meet the cows and calves, learn about dairy farming and sample The Farmer’s Cow milk, ice cream and beverages. Hosted by The Farmer’s Cow farm families, all events are free and fun for all ages.

The first event of the 2014 season is the Winter Farm Tour at Graywall Farms on Monday, February 17th from noon-3 p.m. Celebrate President’s Day exploring a working dairy farm. Wagon rides will take visitors to see the cows and view the farm, and if there is snow on the ground there will be sleigh rides, too. See the “cheese pods” created by The Mystic Cheese Company and meet cheese maker Brian Civitello.

In case of inclement weather, please check The Farmer’s Cow web site and Facebook page for updates.
