Farm Tours

We provide tours for both school groups and non-school groups.
If you would like a guided tour let us know.  We can specialize the tour to make sure you get to see what you are most interested in.

School Tours

Dairy tours at Green Meadow Farms are a wonderful educational experience.
At the farm, students will learn;

            •  How cows are milked
            •  Where cows live
            •  What cows eat
            •  Where the milk goes
            •  And much more

We have found that kids, teachers, and parents alike all enjoy learning about where milk comes from.  Don't hesitate to give us a call and set something up.

Note to Teachers/Chaperones

  • Generally, groups larger than 25 will be split into multiple groups. Please have groups designated prior to arrival.
