Come join us on our dairy farm to experience a glimpse in our day to day work.

We milk 200 cows in a robotic milking barn and would like to share how we use modern technology to provide a comfortable life for our dairy herd and the rest of our livestock. We would also like to answer any questions you may have – from the most basic “where does milk come from?” to any questions you may have about ethical and sustainable practices.

Take a walk through our barn and watch the cows get milked, then take a ride on a tractor pulled wagon around the farm to see the calves and heifers – see if you can find the bull.

Our kids agree that life on a farm is great! We have plenty of calves to pet, as well as a mini pony named “Cola” and her daughter “Stacy’, a stubborn old goat, sheep, lambs, rabbits (even some babies), chickens, cats and kittens and of course dogs! Feel free to make use of the play yard if your kids need some time to run around.

We look forward to seeing you!!

*The farm is wheelchair accessible as it is mostly the same level, however, the farm yard is gravel.
