Class 14 July 17, 2013: Trip to UVM CREAM

Today, the class visited the University of Vermont’s CREAM (Cooperative for Real Education in Agricultural Management) to view the works of dairy farming on a larger scale compared to our field trip last week at Blue Heron Farm. CREAM is a student-run dairy operation that participates in the Cabot cooperative.

Elizabeth, BHS freshman, was documentarian of the day and stated  “I thought that the cows didn’t have a lot of space to move over, but I think the farm is a lot cleaner than most of them I have seen. I really liked going there today because it was different and fun all at the same time.”
