Friendly Competition to Kick Off National Dairy Month

June 5, 2018

Here at Rockview Family Farms, we love kids. We take pride in providing milk in hundreds of school cafeterias all over southern California. We know that proper nutrition is a key component to making sure our next generation is able to learn, grow and excel. The nutrients in milk help children grow strong bodies and minds. So, when we say that SoCal children are “Raised on Rockview,” we really mean it! We are proud of being an important part of growing up.

Now that school is winding down and the summer months are upon us, kids are still being “Raised on Rockview” because the same milk they get at school is available in local grocery stores too (visit our locator page to find a store near you!).

June Dairy Month started in 1937 as a way to distribute extra milk during the warm months of summer. It continues to celebrate the nutritional value of milk and to encourage families to make milk their beverage of choice and to incorporate dairy into family mealtimes.

In honor of all the schools we serve and June Dairy Month, Rockview Family Farms partnered with Old River School here in Downey for our first ever “Raised on Rockview” video-production project. This past few weeks the 5th graders at Old River School have been hard at work making creative video clips highlighting the nutritional value of milk, featuring Rockview Family Farms products. The videos include talking milk cartons, artistic use of green screens, and fun milk facts that you won’t want to miss! Members of the Rockview team attended both the kick-off assembly and the viewing party celebrating the kids’ final work – complete with snacks, Rockview milk and Rockview Family Farms T-shirts!

We will be sharing clips of the student videos all month long on our Facebook and Instagram pages – we would love for you to comment with your favorite! We will also share more fun facts about Rockview’s history and the benefits of school milk for June Dairy Month – so get connected and stay tuned!!

 


Freshest taste around 👌🏼 Delivering farm fresh milk to a store near you! 🚛🚚 (Safely) snap and post a picture of one of our trucks on the road this week and we will send you a @grocery_outlet gift card! What did the buttermilk say to the refrigerator? Close the door, I’m dressing! Buttermilk dressing screams summer freshness! On a salad or as a dip, you’ll want to eat it with a spoon. 🥄(Go ahead, we won’t shame you!) Check out a tasty buttermilk recipe in our profile 😋 Want to spruce up your favorite recipes for baked goods? 🍪🥞🧁 Use Buttermilk instead of regular milk. It’s not just good for pancakes! Even if you use a box mix the buttermilk will make it special. This year we had the honor of awarding two college scholarships, click the link in our profile to read all about it in the Downey Patriot! 👩🏽‍🎓📚 We’re thankful for dads! Hope all of you fathers out there felt the love today for all your hard work and sacrifice ❤️ Just in time to plan your Father’s Day barbecue! He’s a classic and so is a 7-layer salad. You’ll be able to use all your veggies from your community garden plot. A 7-layer salad is a tradition worth keeping alive and when you substitute sour cream instead of mayo, you’ve made it taste even better. Layer fresh peas, shredded cheddar, diced tomatoes, green or red onions, bacon, sliced celery, and top with sour cream in a deep clear dish like a trifle bowl for a beautiful centerpiece on your next buffet. You’ll need about 12 ounces of each ingredient, but make it your own. If these aren’t your favorite ingredients, swap in your favorites. Some families are known to use lettuce, diced ham, and chopped eggs. Have fun and enjoy! 🥙🥒🌽🥕🥓🥒🥗 Rockview Family Farms has been the supplier of school milk to districts across the southland for decades. Watch these “Raised on Rockview” students show their pride. 🎥🎞🥛 Click the link in our profile to watch all of the videos!
