On April 24, the Level 5 students went to visit Scheffler’s Organic Dairy Farm located in Groton, NY. It is about 20 minutes by car from Ithaca. Ed and Eileen showed us how to milk a cow and what kind of crops they grow such as corn, soy bean and sunflowers. They explained the difference between an organic farm and a traditional farm.They also showed us 4 new arrivals to the farm which are 4 sweet and adorable little calves. It was a very interesting day even though it was snowing.
Thanks for the wonderful experience
