Virtual farm tours allow kids stuck inside to visit dairy farms


School closures have resulted in millions of kids stuck at home.

Some dairy farmers see it as an opportunity to educate children without having them leave their couch.

Virtual Farm Tours, produced by American Dairy Association North East (ADANE) are available for children K - 12 and use technology to connect children to dairy farms and the owners who operate them.

Most kids don’t know where their food comes from, and this aims to change that.

Three virtual tours were filmed at Dutch Hollow Farm in Schodack Landing, N.Y., Will-O-Crest Dairy in Clifton Springs, N.Y., and JoBo Holsteins in Gettysburg, Pa., to educate kids on agriculture, animal care, and sustainability.
