Learn about Dairy Farming & Visit a Farm!

Do you want to learn more about dairy farming? DairyNZ and New Zealand’s dairy farmers are helping children and teachers learn more about the dairy sector and where their milk comes from! Working with School Kit, DairyNZ have developed innovative, fun and engaging lesson plans for teachers. They teach core parts of the New Zealand curriculum within subjects such as science, social science, technology and maths, while providing a dairy farming context to learning. Visit the DairyNZ Schools website to download lesson plans.

Dairy Day School Visit

If you can’t come to the farm, we’ll find a way to make a part of the farm come to you. This could be a visit from a milk tanker (available April-August), a local Fonterra farmer, or another Fonterra visitor who will talk to the kids about everything from the goodness of milk to the importance of recycling. Just let us know your request when you fill out the form.
