July Farm Events at Hytone Farm in Coventry and Fort Hill Farms in Thompson let visitors experience *REAL Local* dairy farming in Connecticut. Free family fun for all ages.

Lebanon, CT (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

The farm families of The Farmers Cow are celebrating National Ice Cream Month with REAL Local events at two of its member Connecticut farms. Visitors will be able to tour the farms, meet the farmers, see the cows and sample a variety of The Farmers Cow fresh local products including The Farmers Cow fresh Connecticut ice cream.

  • On Saturday, July 12, the Peracchio family will host a tour at scenic Hytone Farm in Coventry from noon to 3pm. Hytone Farm has the fourth generation of Peracchios working the land to produce high quality Connecticut milk. Visitors will tour the barns that are home to the milking herd, visit the calves in the greenhouse, see the youngstock, tour the milking center, view the surrounding fields of grass and corn, and gain an understanding of life on a Connecticut family dairy farm. After the tour complimentary refreshments will be served including The Farmers Cow ice cream and cold Summer Beverages.
  • On Sunday, July 20, in celebration of National Ice Cream Day, the Orr family will host the annual Ice Cream & Bluegrass Bash at the historic Fort Hill Farms in Thompson from 1 to 4pm. Last summer, more than 1,000 visitors enjoyed this toe-tapping, foot-stomping party featuring complimentary "Itty Bitty" cones of The Farmers Cow fresh Connecticut ice cream. Blackstone Valley Bluegrass will perform live music with powerful three and four-part harmonies. Visitors are also invited to tour the award-winning Quintessential Gardens, enjoy a wagon ride around the fields and meet the calves that will grow up to join the herd as the next generation of The Farmers Cow milking cows.

The Farmers Cow farm tours are a great opportunity to visit the cows that make the milk and learn about all the ways that REAL Local agriculture is good for Connecticut, says Robin Chesmer, managing member of The Farmers Cow. We want people to visit our family farms and experience where local food comes from.

All events are free and no reservation is required. Information about the events and directions to the farms is available on The Farmers Cow website at http://www.TheFarmersCow.com. For more information, call 866355COWS or email farmers(at)TheFarmersCow(dot)com.
