New England Green Pastures Dairy Farm of the Year Posters
From Dairy Farm to School: milk is fresh, local and dairylicious! This poster celebrates the dairy farmer of the year and highlights the Fuel Up to Play 60 State Ambassadors in each of our five New England states.
Know Your Dairy Farmer
Our Know Your Dairy Farmer mini-posters feature a farm from each of our five New England states. Within the posters are photos from the farm, udderly cool cow facts and maybe a corny joke or two. Each issue can be downloaded and either placed in a standing frame for display on the milk cooler or put together to make an 11”x17” mini-poster for your bulletin board.

Know Your Dairy Farmer Archive
Interest is high among educators, students, parents and other folks to learn more about where our food comes from. As a result, we have compiled the activities and resources found below with the goal of educating students about agriculture, the food chain and the importance of eating a healthy diet.
We’re sure you will find them to be valuable resources to help children understand the role of dairy in healthy eating and in the community.
