Introducing Hastings Dairy Tours & Events

Welcome to Hastings Dairy!
This spring we’re starting a new venture on our farm – Hastings Dairy Tours & Events. Our mission is giving consumers the opportunity to learn about animal agriculture by experiencing a working farm. Our farm will be available April 15th to October 31st for organized farm tours and events by appointment. In addition to the scheduled tours, we’ll host some “Open Farm Days" when we’ll be open to the general public. Our offerings include;

Farm Tours
Visitors will experience a modern, working dairy farm in scenic Geauga County, Ohio. Guests can watch cows being milked, see where they're housed and discover how we care for our animals, what they eat, how we assure milk quality and other facts about our dairy farm. Children will enjoy playing in the Calf Corral outdoor playground while parents relax in this picturesque rural setting. We also offer the Junior Dairyman indoor play area which is tailored to children five and younger.

Visitors will have the opportunity to see where our cows live
We can easily accommodate bus excursions and school tours by appointment for groups of 10 or more. Check out our website for pricing and package deals for dairy tours, school tours and birthday parties.

The Parlor Rental
Rent this 1,450 sq. ft. rustic barn facility for a unique meeting or event. Guests can observe the cows being milked through large windows while in The Parlor. This facility includes a large porch and balcony area which provide a beautiful view of the farm and is perfect for a reception. Your group can enjoy a meal or snack while relaxing in The Parlor. There are several food and beverage options we’ll provide prior to booking your event.

We’ll be open every Saturday in June from 10am to 5pm. We’ll also be open some weekends in September and October. Check our website for dates and pricing.
