We are a working farm, so you could get dirty, ideally you should come dressed like you were going to work in your garden. You'll want to wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Find out all the things you want to know about a dairy farm, see how our cheese is made, make some home-made ice cream and grind corn to make flour. See the momma cows and baby calves. Learn how farmers grow the food you eat!

All our tours are informative and fun, but if you can handle a late tour, you see more things happening around 3:00 PM. At 3:00 we are mixing feed, feeding the cows, milking them, turning our compost, feeding the baby calves, and some herd health activities. 80% of what we do happens at this time. We cover this and much more during all our other tours.
