Running for milk

We all know the nutritional value of milk, especially for sports fanatics, as it is a great source of protein. Why not make an event of this and truly celebrate milk by running! Last year, a successful Milk Run was held at the Courthouse Hill Farm in Nova Scotia, which sets a great example to farmers all over the world to engage with consumers in a unique way.

Participants of the Milk Run ran around cornfields and through dairy barns as part of the course and enjoyed the bounties of the dairy industry at periodic stops along the way, all the while enjoying the lovely scenery on the farm.  Owned and operated by the Blois family, Courthouse Hill Farm is one of the oldest farms in North America, established in 1784.
