This report from Michael Schmidt:

Sixteen Dutch farmers confer with Markus Schmidt over lunch at Glencolton Farms.

Hosting a tour of about 16 Dutch farmers at Glencolton Farms.

They got a tour of the dairy processing facility, the barn, the cows on pasture and the direct marketing concept.

They already were familiar with the raw milk battle.

The greates interest they displayed when we explained the cooperative model which takes into account the generation transition and the participation of consumers as coproducers through the farm share concept.

They are touring Ontario visiting several direct consumer marketing models.
