Dairy Day at the Oneonta Farmers' Market


06/15/2012 - The Oneonta Farmers' Market celebrates Dairy Month this Saturday, June 16, at the Main Street Plaza with free tastings of local dairy products, including a visit from the New York State second alternate Dairy Princess, Haley Groat, free samples of local cow and goat milk cheeses and Stewart's Shops Ice Cream, plus live music and a young dairy calf for children to pet. The event is sponsored by Stewart's Shops.

There will be free balloons and educational activities for children, including a petting corral at the Tauzel Farms vendor booth. The Tauzels will talk about milking and raising dairy cows, and children will have the chance to see and pet a live calf from their farm. Tastings begin at 10:30 a.m. at the manager's tent, hosted by Dairy Princess, Haley Groat. Haley will also offer samples of raw milk Gouda cheese by Byebrook Farm, Sherman Hill Farmstead Cheeses by Linda Smith and Stewart's Shops Ice Cream, made with milk from Upstate New York farms, and chat with visitors about the history and importance of dairy farming in New York State. At 11 a.m., local trio, Plan B, will liven up the market square, playing a broad spectrum of genres, including classic country, bluegrass, folk, and old time traditional as well as classic rock. The trio consists of Wes St. Onge's on guitar, fiddle and vocals, Jeane Bennett-O'Dea on fiddle, mandolin, and vocals and Stan Rabbiner, on five string banjo, banjo-dobro and vocals. Live performances at the farmers' market are always free of charge to the public.
