Lebanon, CT (PRWEB) July 24, 2014
The annual corn silage harvest will soon be underway on The Farmer’s Cow farms. It is a ritual of long days and nights working in the fields to harvest hundreds of acres of corn to feed the cows on the six family-owned farms of The Farmer’s Cow.
To celebrate the harvest season, The Farmer’s Cow is hosting two REAL Local farm tours. At each event, visitors will be able to tour the farms, meet the farmers, see the cows and sample a variety of The Farmer’s Cow fresh local products including ice cream, summer beverages and milk.
“Harvest season is an especially important time on The Farmer’s Cow farms because our cows eat local too. The Corn Roast and Corn Maze Adventure are fun ways to get people to visit our farms and learn about REAL Local agriculture,” said Robin Chesmer. “Being REAL Local is about keeping the distance from our farms to your table short. It’s about being able to visit the farms, meet the cows and get to know the farmers behind the food you buy. It’s about knowing the money you spend to buy fresh food also supports the local economy."
