  • I took my three year old son for the dairy tour. It was really fun and educational. It moved fast enough to keep his attention. He loved seeing where milk comes from and he even got to try chocolate milk for the first time! His favorite part was feeding the baby calves. There are also goats and a fun shaded playground. I would definitely recommend this tour to other families.
  • My brother and I went for a tour today and it was amazing! We got to see goats, chickens, pigs, and the cows of course. I learned so much about the milking process and the employees were very helpful and kind. I even learned how to make homemade butter from nothing but heavy cream and a jar! Love this company and all they stand for. Hardworking people, who love showing others all about what they do everyday. We ended the day with a hayride around the farm and some chocolate milk!
  • I have been purchasing your whole milk at Snow's Produce in Holder, Citrus County Florida. Your milk is delicious and stay fresh longer than store milk. I don't mind paying a little more for a good product. I am also trying to do my part on buying local. Thank you for your commitment to the community.
  • Great products and beautiful farm. Worth the trip out to the farm. We love your eggnog & worlds best chocolate milk!!!!!!
  • Great learning experience. Professional, friendly staff providing insight into day to day operations. The festival is great my kids love it.
