NORWICH – The 8th Annual Chenango County Dairy Celebration is an opportunity to shine the spotlight back on the area’s biggest industry, agricultural leaders say, and connect youth and adults to their food producers and cultural heritage.
“It’s a way of saying thank you to those that feed us, take care of us and take care of our environment,” said Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Agriculture Educator Janet Pfromm. “It’s also a chance for our farm families to get a day off and celebrate the work they do.”
Dairy Day, held annually in June at the Chenango County Fairgrounds during National Dairy Month, begins at 9 a.m. Saturday with the 5K “Milk Run” and a parade at 11 a.m. down East Main Street in Norwich. There will be agricultural activities, demonstrations and educational booths at the fairgrounds the rest of the day.
