“Hi, Ho, the Dairy-o”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

We took the farm tour on Easter weekend, so we got to do the Easter egg hunt in addition to the tour (the eggs, by the way, were large, decorated goose eggs; very original). The tour was great. The guide (who is the actual dairy farmer, and so can answer any question about anything bovine), made it interesting for the adults and interesting for the kids; a tough balancing act, but she did it effortlessly. The whole thing is really low key, making it easy for us trying to corral our two very young kids during the tour.

My one warning would be that if you really have zero interest in learning about the process of running a dairy farm and just want to see the animals, then you will be bored. You do get to see and touch and feed the animals, but the tour is meant to be educational as well.

Wear boots.

“Delightful!”
Reviewed 18 September 2011

We took a family tour-5 adults and 6 children. With an obvious passion for farming and education, Tina was very experienced in leading children. She was very interactive with the kids in an interesting and fun way and made us feel very welcome. The kids loved getting to feed and pet the animals. Great!

“Entertaining and Educational – in one!”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in how a dairy farm operates and interested in animals. A friend and I took our two children (age 6) and had a great time. The booking of the tour was simple, and I was surprised at the length…. 2 hours. I was curious on how they could tour a dairy farm for 2 hours, but we did…. And it was worth every penny! We did everything from tractor rides, milking a cow and feeding chickens. My son keeps begging us to go back!
