Blossom Queens Tour Area Farms


Published: Friday, April 21, 2017

Last Saturday, more than a dozen royalty from the Blossomtime Festival participated in the 34th annual farm tour in Southwest Michigan.

The tour began at Andrews University in Berrien Springs and visited GreenMark Equipment in Sodus, Jollay Orchards in Coloma, Walther Farms in Lawton, Bullseye Marketplace in Vandalia, Fedore Large Animal Veterinary Service in Cassopolis, Robinson Hog Farm in Cassopolis, Russ Forest Maple Trees in Cassopolis and Shuler's Dairy Farm in Baroda.

At Shuler's, the queens and princes got an up-close look at the two robots used to milk the herd of 50 cows. They also tried their hand at milking a cow and learned about the ways in which the Shulers keep their cows comfortable.
