Still Looking for a Summer Activity for Your Child?
My two – now grown – would have loved this: Dairy Day Camp at Fulper Farms in Lambertville. 5- and 3-day day camps – offered for kids 8 to 13 – include activities like leading, washing, clipping, and showing your own calf; making homemade ice cream, butter, and milkshakes; and seeing a cow give birth. Camps run through July and a bit of August. I haven’t checked out price or availability, but you can get some details here, then contact Molly Pfaffenroth at 609.651.5991 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Exhibits in NY, DC & NJ Focus on Food
I’ve been making the rounds of major art, culture, and history museums on the East Coast, taking a big bite of their special exhibits that focus on food, drink, and dining. Dig into what I found at the Smithsonian, the American Museum of Natural History, The Tenement Museum, Grounds For Sculpture, and Liberty Hall at Kean University, here in the June 26 issue of US 1.
