Milk and dairy products are New York state’s top agricultural commodity! Do you want to learn more about where milk comes from and see the cows that make it, right here in our county?

Orange County 4-H is hosting a 5-week Dairy Explorers programs.

The program will meet on Tuesdays from June 18th through July 16th from 6:30-8:00 pm, and will be hosted by two local Orange County dairy farms:

  • Stap Dairy in Pine Bush, NY - June 18 and 25
  • Spruce Gate Holsteins in Walden, NY - July 2, 9.

The final session for both programs is Sunday July 28th at Noon at The Country Fair in Otisville.

Youth will be able to 

  • See the farms
  • Learn about how farmers take care of their cows
  • Do fun crafts and activities
  • Groom and show a calf at the Country Fair on July 28th!

Cost is $25, and there are 20 spots available in the program.
