We were on our way through the area stopped to see this corporate dairy operation-well organized for a visitor. Interesting immediately off the Interstate - worth a visit- really interesting for children too!

Interesting learning experience for young and old alike...Love that it is powered by the gas that is separated from the manure of cows. They show how everything can have a balance. Fresh milk, baked goods, restaurant, tours, cows giving birth, wow, so much to learn and see...

Learned a lot of interesting facts about dairy cows and how a dairy farm works; watched the birth of a calf and toured the barns and cow carousel. Very nice experience but slightly overpriced.

We've been to Fair Oaks Farms many times. The dairy tour, the cheese, and especially the ice cream are highlights of our annual visits to family in Indiana. We have mixed feelings about the new pig operation, however. They purchase baby females from another outfit and raise them to breeding age, when they spend several years having 2.6 litters per...

The birthing place is very educational. The trip around the milking place is also interesting. Kids will definitely love and realize that the milk does not really come from the cartons.

It's geared towards kids, but I wouldn't take under elementary age kids.

But I was a little dismayed at seeing the animals it this light. I... More

Tour was great. The bus takes you around and shows you every step of the farm. The birthing barn was different but shows you how a cow is born. Ice cream was great at the end! (not included in tour)

Great attraction for kids AND adults!!! And at the end, there is ice cream to sample! Lots of hands-on activities for kids, especially on a nice day when you can take advantage of the outdoor fun too.

A real adventure for someone unfamiliar with farming ways. They have a large dairy herd, make cheese, ice cream, etc. and have an excellent learning area for families and children.
