Visit our Farm this Fall

Fall is a wonderful time to visit a farm. Here on our farm, we’re offering five special events open to the public September 19, 22 & 28 and October 11 & 20. In addition, private tours and party packages are available by appointment through October 31. Check out Hastings Dairy for details.

A visit to our farm includes a guided tour of the milking parlor to watch the cows being milked, a wagon ride to the barn to see where the cows live, a visit to the calf area to pet the calves, a ride on the Chugga Chugga Moo Moo Train, agri-education stations, outdoor playground, corn box, pedal tractors, craft activity, farm games, and a Junior Dairyman indoor play area.


Here are the things you’ll experience when you visit our farm. . .
