Ronnybrook Farms Open House Features Delicious Dairy and Solar Energy
I just received this press release from Ronnybrook Farms. I wrote about them in a recent posting, and so I was really excited to hear their news about this weekend’s Open House and their new solar energy panels. So here’s the full press release:
Ronnybrook Farm Holds Family Day Celebration: Company Unveils New Solar Panels
ACRAMDALE, August 5, 2010 — Ronnybrook Farm is opening its green pastures and energy-efficient farming and production operations for an open house on Aug. 8 to educate the public about the value of natural, local agriculture and alternative energy to the regional economy.
The event celebrates the farm’s 20th anniversary of production and almost 70 years of operation as a family-owned farm by the Osofsky family.
The old-fashioned day at the farm from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. will feature family fun, including hay rides, farm and production facility tours, live music, cooking demonstrations featuring Ronnybrook’s wholesome dairy products, free product samples, a food tent to benefit the local Future Farmers of America and more.
Ronnybrook also will unveil its award-winning state-of-the art solar thermal system designed and installed by EarthKind Solar of Kingston. The 30 solar collectors use the sun to produce the hot water needed for the on-site production of milk, yogurt and other dairy products, saving the farm about 2,000 gallons of oil annually.
This Hudson Valley farm has a history of practicing organic methods and sustainable measures while creating healthy dairy products. They use only the finest natural ingredients and milk from their own herd of hormone-free Holstein Cows.
The event is free and open to the public. The farm, located at 310 Prospect Hill Rd. in Ancramdale, is also offering complimentary transportation from the Metro-North Wassaic rail station for visitors. For more information, contact Jessica Hunt, firstname.lastname@example.org, (518) 398-6455.
