Kids Dairy Day at Lilly Den Farm
June is National Dairy month so let’s learn all about DAIRY!
Tuesday, June 27th
10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Kids will spend the first half of the day working with Farmer Tucker learning about dairy cows, the different breeds, what they need to eat to stay healthy, the anatomy of a cow, the life cycle of a cow and much more. They will get hands on experience with milking cows, feeding cows, cleaning milking equipment and pouring fresh milk out of the bulk tank.
Lunch will be provided. Kids will enjoy a slider with farm fresh cheese, fresh watermelon and homemade yogurt parfaits they kids build themselves.
The second half of the day the kids will learn the art of making fresh mozzarella cheese. They will read a thermometer, add different cultures, separate the curds from the whey and stretch the cheese to perfection. Kids will also make farmers cheese and season it with fresh local herbs of their choice.
The kids will end the day making homemade ice cream.
