Come On Down to the Farm - Visitors Welcome!

In celebration of June Dairy Month, we’re opening our dairy to visitors every Saturday in June. We’ve been hard at work mowing, raking, building a playground, mapping out a hayride route, and generally making our farm look its best.

This is fun!

Join our family to see the cows and calves and have fun on our farm. Your whole family will enjoy experiencing a modern, working dairy farm during Open Farm Days. Visitors can watch the cows being milked, pet the calves, take a hayride, and learn how milk is produced on this scenic farm. Admission is $5/person and children 2 and under are free.

We look forward to hosting you on our farm! To find out more, check out the Hastings Dairy website.  


  1. Thank you for doing this. I love the pics of the farm. I started my blog to promote our farm too. We will see where you are at and might bring the kids to visit.
    Thanks again

  2. What a wonderful idea! Good luck with the last minute preparations. We hope you have a great turn-out.
