Tour our Farmstead

Tour our FarmsteadTour our FarmsteadWe love to give tours of our Farmstead and share with you our farming practices  Tours are given by appointment only and cost $2 per person.  This fee includes the tour and an ice cream cone from our farmstead store.

We welcome any size group, large or small.  During your tour we will visit our milking parlor and learn how the cows give us their rich milk.  Then we will travel to see the heifers and steers, and stop by to see the new born calves.  Finally we will see the goats. Tours will begin and end at the Farmstead Country Store, where you can look into the creamery where the milk is bottled.

Typically tours last 45-60 minutes depending on the size of group.
