Visit a Real Dairy Farm this Fall

There are two more open events at our farm this season. Join us to see the cows, taste milk, and enjoy the beautiful fall colors from our dairy on the hill.

Cow Tales Adventures (for children 5 & under w/ caregiver)
October 7 from 10:00am-12:00pm @ $6/person (12 months & under free)
This farm adventure allows young children and caregivers to take a wagon ride around the farm, pet the calves, ride the train, play, and have fun! Arrive by 10am and plan to be at the farm until 12pm to take part in all of the activities.  


Milk from Cow to Bottle Tour & Tasting 
October 11 from 1:00-3:00pm @ $6/person (12 months & under free)
Interested in tasting delicious fresh milk and meeting the cows who produced it? Attend “Milk from Cow to Bottle Tour & Tasting”. This event will include milking parlor tours, wagon rides, petting the calves, the cow train for kids, viewing the creamery, and milk tasting. This is an open house, so visitors can come and go during the event.

Taste milk bottled at our on-farm Rowdy Cow Creamery. This is one of only a few farmstead milk bottling operations in Ohio. The milk is fresh and delicious! Milk will be for sale during all tours and events, so bring your cooler.

  2. I remember going to the dairy as a child and always loved it. I chaperoned by Daughter's trip there with school last year and it was funny to hear the kids talk about the smells and how the cows feel to pet. But, they do gain a better appreciation for dairy products and how they are obtained. Good educational experience!
