For Stacy Foster, an Oregon dairy farmer, school tours are an opportunity to not only tell, but truly show children where their milk comes from.

“A lot of their kids don’t understand that milk comes from a dairy,” Foster said.

As a result, Foster and the entire team at Rickreall Dairy go through the whole process, from allowing kids to feed calves to showing them how cows are milked, so the students can better comprehend how their milk reaches the store.

While those at Rickreall Dairy love having the kids visit, you won’t believe what Foster’s favorite part is of each school tour! Watch the video to learn more.
