Support the next generation of Pennsylvania’s dairy industry while experiencing this evening of delight for your senses.

  •  Watch as Thomas Herr, a 17-year-old dairy farmer, creates a live art rendering of a rural landscape. Visit with other local artists and bid on their pieces during a silent art auction.
  • Taste a wide variety of delicious cheeses from local artisan cheese makers and learn as Culture Magazine owner and co-founder Lassa Skinner takes you inside the world of cheese. Locally-crafted wine, beer and cider from the Vineyard and Brewery at Hershey are available to pair with the cheese.
  • Sample a wide variety of gourmet chocolates and listen as Jim St. John, a senior fellow at Hershey’s, describes the different taste and feel.
  • Listen as local farmers host “fireside chats” to share how your food is produced and how they care for their animals and the food they produce.
  • Meet dairy’s future generation, the young people who have benefited from the Center Foundation’s scholarship and internship programs.
  • Feel like a kid again as you pet a live dairy calf and get your picture taken with the Turkey Hill giant cow, both on-site at the event.
