Absolutely loved this tour of a real working dairy farm. The tour is hosted by the farm owner , and she was so pleasant, patient and informative! Absolutely recommend a visit, and not just for kids!

We cannot say enough good things about this farm tour! Tina was an excellent source of information. She sets up the tour to make sure everyone learns as much as possible about all the farm animals and dairy business. This tour is very interactive- you get to milk a cow, hold chickens, bottle feed baby animals and hand feed goats. They even take you on a hayride to see the farm. Thanks so much for allowing visitors to the area to learn more about dairy farming and to interact with the animals. This is a must-do if you are anywhere close to Cambridge!

Our day at the farm was filled with fun, new experiences. The two-hour tour included a tractor-pulled hay ride, visits to the barns, the milking parlor, the goat pens and the chicken coop. We milked a cow, held a chick, held a chicken, pet and fed the goats both food and bottles of milk. We visited the claves--one born just that day--and let them suck on our fingers. Sounds gross, but it was really cool. We learned about milk production, calf development and birth, different varieties of chickens and the stages of growth, and egg production and coloring. We learned about safety procedures on the farm, how crops grow, what happens in a drought, and where the milk goes after it leaves the farm. We learned about the lives of real farmers and the ins and outs of daily farm life. People come here from all over the world. I'm just sorry it took me so long to visit a place that's only a short drive from home. We will go back.

We visit the farm at least once a year. It never gets old, the kids love the animals and the grown ups love Tina's entertaining and educational style. There's always something different- last time we drooled over a vintage car! This is also a tour for foodies, who want to know more about where their food comes from. Dont miss the fresh rasberries in the summertime- you pick them yourself!

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.
