Farms! Farms! Farms! Class Field Trip to County Farms -- and one very patient cow and 53 student milkers!

Class field trip to Whatcom County’s Twin Brook Creamery, VeenHuizen Farms, BelleWood Acres.
Twin Brook: Low-temp pasteurized (non-homogenized) chocolate milk and food for thought on marketing glass bottles.

Bottling Chocolate Milk -- two at a time

VeenHuizen: Milking cows by hand (Wil, you’re hired for the night shift), Dairying 101, and a good look at the high cost of farming, but also its invaluable farm culture.

Shane VanderVeen of Veen Huizen Farms patiently explains and demonstrates how-to-milk-a-cow 101

BelleWood Acres: A good look at orchard-ing, and what to do with all those extra apples (sauce, syrup, chips, pies) and pears and more.
