Watched a mother cow clean her 8 minute old baby calf - how cools is that

This attraction is super easy to get to - right off of I-65. Great stop if you are passing through or if you are in the area. I think this is kind of an important attraction... read more

This attraction is super easy to get to - right off of I-65. Great stop if you are passing through or if you are in the area. I think this is kind of an important attraction because it does highlight - in a very commercial friendly kind of way - where our food comes from. A birthing barn, pig barn... More

I would recommend this place to tour to young and old. Very enjoyable and very interesting. We got to take a bus ride through all the dairy barns. Visit the platform where they milk the cows and even got to watch a baby calf being born.. Very educational.

The amount of information and education that this adventure provides is priceless. This was an incredible educational experience and being able to see how well the animals and land are taken care of is incredible. The restaurant had amazing food as well. If you are ever in the area I highly recommend visiting Fair Oaks Family Farm!

This is no longer a free attraction can be quite costly to visit but worth it...You must visit the cheese shop while here..and if you get lucky you can see a live birth of a calf...WE did very interesting!

We have visited several times and it just keeps getting better. This place is immaculate and the staff is super friendly and helpful. It is a fun, informative hands-on adventure for the whole family to enjoy. I would leave more time than they recommend per adventure if you want to take your time and not rush through. You MUST stop... More

We toured both the Dairy and the Pig barns and both were very clean and well run. There were a lot of things to engage and educate kids, but my husband and I were delighted just to be able to see inside a modern Dairy and the Pig operation. Because modern contained barns carefully guard against stray germs being carried... More

I wrote a review about the overall experience at Fair Oaks Farm. Saw a newborn calf...like minutes old. We missed the actual birth. You see these in the building on the main campus. Nyla board a bus and head down the road to see and learn about the actually dairy operation. We learned a lot and we are 4-H families... More

Excellent place to visit for several reasons. Educational in that you get to see how a modern dairy is run. Bus tour allows you to see everything. Actually get to see a baby calf born. Playground where kids can run off steam. Can have fresh ice cream and cheese. Nice way to spend a half a day!!

Both the dairy tour and the pig tour are very informative. There is quality information provided by the guides on both tours as well as the displays in the pig exhibit. The entire operation, however, is depressing. They brag about the cleanliness and the lack of crowding of the animals. While I will agree that the facilities were clean, if... More
