  • Best chocolate milk you will drink. Rich and creamy. Worth the drive to pick it up at the farm. Grandkids like the experience.

  • The tour of the large dairy operation was great with so much to see! Feeding the gaits and the calves under the shade of old oaks was delightful. Playing on the swings and sand Hill was fun as well. The market and cafe are full of tasty treats the best of all being the ice cream! The whole experience was great at a reasonable price!
  • This is a great local activity to do no matter how young or old you are! It is the only dairy farm open to the public in SW Fl. We loved the tour and the cafe on the property. Most impressive was the sustainability and how well the Cow’s “the girls” are taken care of. We highly recommend booking a tour, we will be back soon!
  • After two years of not being open for tours, we were excited to tour from out of state. We were able to try their chocolate milk and butter...so delicious!!! A great place for kids to romp around outside!! Deli is short staffed so we weren't able to try their food after the tour. Fyi: it was difficult to see the cows appearing to be in pain after they were milked. Many of the cows had protruding bones and that was an unpleasant part of the tour.
  • A fun place to visit. You can take a tour of a working dairy farm or just stop in for a snack or a quick lunch. We bike ride out here and always enjoy our stop.
  • Had an awesome lunch with hubby, and brought home a bunch of goodies. Will definitely be going back. Sorry, no other pics as I was enjoying the company and food instead of being on my phone.
