Our field trip to Hilmar was a great success! While there the children learned how cheese is made and there were many hands on exhibits that explored cheesemaking, cows and dairies. We also got the opportunity to watch the cheese factory employees package what they called “the Big Cheese” which is a 640 pound crate worth of cheese! And of course, the highlight of the tour was when the kids got to make their own ice cream. We have learned so much from this field trip to the cheese factory, thank you Hilmar for the wonderful experience!
