June is for Pollinators and Dairy

June is National Pollinators Month and National Dairy Month. Both great things to celebrate in Farm to Early Care land - and don't worry, they are good to celebrate even if you are reading this in July!


"Just give me that milk moo moo moo moo" - Milk is Minnesota's state drink, and Minnesota's farmers produce a whole lot of it each year - nearly 9 billion pounds. Check out a virtual tour of Ahlgren Dairy with Minnesota Ag in the Classroom, or check out our Pint Size Produce Dairy activity and make butter


Bees and other pollinators often get a bad rap - this great book helps us learn how bees help so many of the things we love to eat grow (including strawberries!) Check out a short preview of the book here.
