Leading into Thanksgiving, Dairy Farmers of Ontario promote ice cream
TORONTO, Oct. 5 /CNW/ - On Tuesday, October 6th, 2009 a herd of a dozen dairy cows will visit the city for a photo opportunity in front of the world renowned Michael Lee-Chin Crystal at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) to increase awareness of ice cream made with 100% Canadian milk, and remind consumers where real milk comes from.
Canadians can support their local farmers by choosing to buy local products - including ice cream made with 100% Canadian milk.
The ROM is pleased to support the DFO as they remind people where milk comes from, and that urban life still depends in many ways on its rural surroundings. The juxtaposition of dairy cows against the sleekly contemporary Michael-Lee Chin Crystal is a reminder to urbanites to think about the rural life around us, where our food comes from, and the domesticated animals that have served us for centuries. The ROM supports the sustainable locavore agriculture movement through it's work with Ontario farmers in providing local, artisanal and sustainable foods in it's restaurants - c5 and Food Studio.
