Show your love for our Alberta dairy farmers and processors all month long as they celebrate Dairy Month! Here’s a few ways that you can bring the celebration home:
- Learn about dairy farming from our friends at Alberta Milk.
- Try some new recipes that use dairy (like Chef Bri Campbell’s Grizzly Gnudi, or Chef Laetitia Chrapchynski’s Kolhrabi Periogies).
- Beat the heat with Alberta Milk’s map to the best ice cream that uses local milk (or make it at home using this recipe).
- Have a cheese and beer pairing night with some of the amazing cheeses from places like Sylvan Star, Crystal Springs, and Old School Cheesery. Don’t forget the Alberta craft beer pairings!
In 2001, World Milk Day was established by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations to recognize the importance of milk as a global food, and to celebrate the dairy sector. Each year since, the benefits of milk and dairy products have been actively promoted around the world, including how dairy supports the livelihoods of one billion people.

However you celebrate, don’t forget to look for the blue Dairy Farmers of Canada sticker!
