Located just 10 miles South of Mitchell (Hwy 37 South to Hwy 42 East), we are easy to find and welcome you to come enjoy the farm and learn about dairy processing!

We've become a popular school field trip destination, as well as a gathering spot for company picnics, birthday parties, group/bus tours, and more!

If you're just stopping in and have a smaller group, we are happy to do a quick tour to show you around the creamery (free). If you're bringing a group of 6 or more, we ask that you schedule with us so we can provide a great experience.

We are a working processing facility and if you are bringing a larger group,

we may need to adjust production to accommodate. Paid tour includes: Guided educational creamery tour discussing dairy processing, tailored to age group. Tour takes approx. 20-30 minutes depending on questions and group interaction. Chocolate milk and cheese curd samples included at end of tour. Coloring sheets and cow hats included

to take home. Self guided petting farm interaction and playground time included.

Add-ons include unlimited mini-golf and ice cream.

Stations can be provided for larger groups.

Farm Store is always open for purchasing products. 

We've put together a TOUR FORM that answers a lot of the frequently asked questions. If you'd like to schedule, just fill out the form and email to!

If you'd like to hold your 4-H/FFA/church group/Scouts/etc meetings, fundraiser, company picnic, birthday party at the farm, the tour form gives you a quick idea of options, but please call or email and we are happy to work with you. 

YES, you can: bring outside food, use picnic areas, set-up your own tables for parties or meetings, decorate, turn a bus around in our lot, etc. 

NO: please don't bring your own pets. Our dogs LOVE visitors, and we LOVE all animals, but this our dogs' territory, and they may decide your dog is a threat.

Also, we have a large variety of animals on the farm that if your dog has never been around them all, we can't be sure what they may do. 


We love to educate about dairy farming, our processing facility, and all of the critters that live here as part of our interactive and educational farm experience!
