Virtual Dairy Farm Field Trip

This classroom-based program enables students to learn more about where their food comes from, through an interactive presentation and virtual visit from a local dairy farmer. Using Zoom video, a farmer “visits” the classroom to engage with students – to take them on a tour, answer questions about dairy farming, and give them a better sense of what agriculture and food production are all about.

To request a time for your Virtual Farm Field Trip, click here.
We can focus your tour to talk about certain subjects. If you have a request on a focus then add it to your submission.


Utah and Idaho teachers can order a free cheesemaking demonstration kit for your class. You can connect this activity to classroom instruction with the lessons suggested for your students, with a dairy farm field trip, or any number of other ways.

No matter what kind of milk you buy at the grocery store, you’re sure to find the word “pasteurized” printed somewhere on the label. And that’s a good thing, because pasteurization is vital for keeping your milk safe and fresh.
