Brownes Dairy School Tours now available three days a week!

Why take a School Tour?

In our technologically-driven lives, it’s easy to lose connection to the natural world. Particularly where our food comes from. Living in the suburbs, most of our food is conveniently available from our fridge or supermarket.

Most adults take for granted that milk comes from a cow. However, for some children the idea milk doesn’t start on a supermarket shelf can be a joyful revelation. Above all, It’s especially wonderful to witness the reaction when children get the opportunity to meet and milk a real cow for the first time!

About our Free School Tours

Brownes Dairy School Tours provide a rare opportunity for students (Kindy to Year 6) to understand where milk comes from and how it’s used to make delicious dairy products. Our 90-minute itinerary starts at the Brownes Dairy ‘milking shed’ where our very own Famer Damien greets the students.

A short introductory ‘from moo to you’ video explains how milk is collected and delivered to shops to end up in your fridge at home. This is followed by a visit to the ‘innovation kitchen,’ to learn about food safety and quality. After that, students enjoy a dairy taste-test and complete a food experiment.

The students then witness technology at work as the milk bottles are filled and placed in crates ready for delivery.

However, the undeniable highlight is getting to milk Farmer Damian’s Jersey cow, Betsy!

With all that to look forward to, its no wonder our iconic tour has been so popular. As a result of this, we’re excited to announce that our award-winning, curriculum-aligned program is now available three days a week!
