There are a few working farms (with milk-producing cows) with cottages - but I think the question about milking of cows might have to be directed directly at the establishments themselves as I'm guessing it's quite an unusual must-do!!

If the lady wants to milk a cow for her birthday, I think you are going to have to bite the bullet and get asking some questions ;-)

EDIT: this might be the one!

Ha!H

Cows need to be used to hand milking so the major milking parlours probably aren't on unless they have a house cow.

What about a city farm, they won't have milking parlours?

Also you may have to look at a farm stay somewhere else and go elsewhere to milk a cow

Blow, the edit didn't work.

I'm thinking 'helping out' in twixt's reply, may be washing the udders.

There is Bryers Heritage Farm in Derby, touching is clearly allowed but I am not sure about milking.
