“The tour is scheduled for Thursday October 25th and we will leave from the Farm Bureau and head to Westminster to see Gibson’s Cattle Farm, the only organic cattle farm in the state. Then we will have lunch on site and then go to Red Creek Farm, where they train working and hearding dogs. We will see a demonstration of the dogs abilities. Then we will go to Happy Cow Creamery to see their great dairy products. They produce and bottle their own milk along with cheese and other dairy products.”
