Introducing Dairy Days

Dairy Days give children a chance to see where the milk they drink comes from – either with a visit to a farm, or when the farm comes to the classroom! The topics covered off by the farmer or tanker driver include things like ‘Life on the Farm’ or ‘The Goodness of Dairy’.

The Dairy Days are just for schools and they can only be held at certain times of the year, depending on the farming season. We’ll let you know what times are available after we’ve received your application form. Dairy Days are free, although we ask schools to organise their own transport. If your school needs help with transport funding, let us know by checking the box on the form.

FMFS Farm Tour Farm Visit

Dairy Day Farm Visit

A field trip to a local Fonterra farm is a really great way for kids to see where the milk they drink comes from, and learn a little about life as a dairy farmer. For many, this is the first time they’ve been to a farm, and it’s always a lot of fun. The farmer could be talking to them about the milking process; they’re likely to meet some dairy cows and will get to ask lots of questions along the way. You can select a particular topic for the students to learn about when you fill in the application form.

If you can’t come to the farm, we’ll find a way to make a part of the farm come to you. This could be a visit from a milk tanker (available April-August), a local Fonterra farmer, or another Fonterra visitor who will talk to the kids about everything from the goodness of milk to the importance of recycling. Just let us know your request when you fill out the form.
