Staying Small Through a Century of Dairy Farming

The Cornell Small Farms Program and Tompkins County Cooperative Extension will host a small dairy field day titled “Staying Small Through a Century of Dairy Farming” on Wednesday, June 20th, from 1 – 3pm in Brooktondale, NY, Tompkins County.   The farm has been in the Snow family for three generations.  A year and a half ago Calvin (father) and Aaron (son) started producing cheese from a small percentage of milk to sell locally.   Snofarm is milking 35 cows, primarily Holsteins, a few Dutch Belts and a few Brown Swiss.  The afternoon will consist of field, barn, and cheese making facility tours and discussion. To register, contact Monika Roth, 607-272-2292, mr55@cornell.edu
