New Year, New Fun!

We’re excited to begin a new year at Fair Oaks Farms! We worked hard last year to create the most fun you could possibly have on a farm, but we’re right back to work for 2018! The month of January brings us a host of fun days to get excited about, honoring special parts of our farm and talented members of our society! Check out the special days below and let us know which you’re most excited about in the comments!

National Milk Day

You haven’t lived until you’ve tried our milk! Our milk can be found at the Cowfe, Dairycatessan, a supermarket near you, and delivered right to your front door! Kids go crazy for our chocolate milk, but nothing beats cookies and our 2% white. On National Milk Day, January 11th, we’ll be using social media to celebrate, with engaging posts and interactive hashtags to get your feedback about how you like to use Fair Oaks Farms milk! Is it your favorite when it’s frozen to perfection in our ice cream? Or maybe carrying your favorite cereal in the morning? Do you think milk is the best in a soup or recipe? Get your ideas together and celebrate National Milk Day with us!

Cheese Me, Please! Week & National Cheese Lovers Day

Our milk might be to die for, but our cheese is definitely something to live for! We keep a variety of cheese stocked in the same places we sell our milk – the Cowfe, Dairycatessan, a supermarket near you, and delivered right to your front door! We have over 20 flavors, ranging from smoky or sweet, from sharp or spicy! National Cheese Lovers Day is on January 20th, so we encourage you to bring the whole family and fill your tummies with free samples at our Cowfe! Find your favorite cheese and take it home for sandwiches, entrees, and snacks. The entire week of January 15th to the 20th, we’ll be celebrating National Cheese Lovers day in a big way – with Cheese Me, Please! Week on our social media channels! Join us online for engaging posts and interactive hashtags to let us know what your favorite Fair Oaks Farms cheese is, and how you use it to make your cheesiest, favorite foods! Your recipe could appear in a blog on our website, for the whole world to read! We’ll also be sharing exclusive interviews with our cheesiest employees from the Cheese Counter and online sales, so you can get all the details on what makes our cheese the best!
