Do you have questions? Do you ever wonder where your food comes from, how cows are cared for on the farm or how farmers care for the land we live on in our community? If so, then we hope you join us at an upcoming Dairy Dialogue event being held in various parts of New York State throughout the remainder of 2019.
Dairy Dialogues is meant to be an informal evening that provides the opportunity for dialogue to occur between local dairy farmers and consumers of dairy products. Our goal is to help consumers connect with those producing their food and allow them to get questions answered and meet a farmer, face-to-face. Dairy farmers are passionate, hard-working people who dedicate their daily lives to caring for the cows on their farm, the land they live on and the communities they live in and we hope you take the chance to come out and meet a local one in your area.
