ADANE Virtual Farm Tours to Help Kids Pass the Time
Active on Social Media? American Dairy Association Northeast says to consider these tips during this challenging time For farmers - there's now a larger audience of families looking for interesting, educational material to pass the time over the next several weeks. Connect with these folks by offering a glimpse of your everyday life, whether through short videos, show-and-tell of various parts of the farm, caption contests, or simply asking what they'd like to know more about. Consider inviting families into your kitchen to showcase your favorite dairy recipes (kid-friendly recipes are always a hit). Remind them a healthy diet - including the nine essential nutrients found in milk and dairy products - is essential to a healthy immune system.
The American Dairy Association Northeast recommends its virtual farm tours and online dairy lesson plans to help keep them engaged and actively learning. Since posting a reminder about the virtual farm tours on our social media channels on Monday, more than 7,000 people have already tuned into the tours.
