Fun & educational for kids. My 78 yr old dad even loved walking around looking at the animals. However, if there was nothing to look at here, the cheese alone is worth the trip.

What a great stop. We purchased every cheese they had the guy who helped us was the friendliest guy I think we've ever met. Visited the barn with all the animals. Can't say enough. Town is lucky to have them.

Very nice farm for the kids to visit. They have pigs, goats, cows, chickens and ducks. You are free to roam around and see the animals. There is a store where you can buy homemade cheese.

My students came back with new perspectives and lots of wonderful stories. The food is superb and the farmers helpful and informative. They milked cows and goats, cooked with chefs, hiked, biked, built a bee hive, made campfires, played games, watched cheese making and planned...More

The farm is very visitor friendly and gives a wonderful introduction to farm life to those who are unfamiliar with it. Our granddaughters enjoyed it very much. The animals, the gardens the orchard all were a practical and fun school for children and a trip...More
