Denzeisen Dairy Farm Taste Test at Maldonado
We held a Milk Taste Test at school using milk from a local dairy farm. We tried five different flavors from the Denzeisen dairy farm. We graphed our results and it turned out chocolate was our favorite. We watched a short video on Farm to Table and students were able to answer three questions. What is dairy? Where does dairy come from? Why is it important that we have it?

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

It was a challenge to get students to try new flavors without seeing the name but once they were informed on where it came from and what the flavors were, they were happy to try them out.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

This Play will last through the year through various Taste Tests for farm to table (cheese, produce, etc.).

How did you accomplish your goals?

We were able to raise money through the football cup fundraiser, purchased milk from a local grocery store and conducted the test by grade level.
