Rode the Wm Field bike trail and came upon the Country Dairy. Did a quick check of Trip Advisor reviews and decided to blow major calories here. Totally worth it. Chocolate milk was awesome-$1 for bottomless cup. Are you kidding me? My partner and I then went for the butter pecan ice cream. I can honestly say that it was... More

We travelled from Manitowoc Wi. to Ludington Mi. on the Car Ferry Badger. We stayed overnight and the next day drove about a half hour to New Era. Country Dairy is a working dairy farm. For a modest cost they take you on a tractor ride to see the cows up close. There is some walking involved on the tour.... More

This a fun destination and a great place to eat! Family owned business: Milk, cheese, and ice-cream can't be beat! They offer an enjoyable educational tour called Moo School. Great activity for all ages if you're in the area. It's a great place to eat too. Don't overlook pizza in the adjacent room. Everything we've had is wonderful. Kids meals... More

We stopped here for lunch and the tour after cycling from Mears. It was a wonderful tour and we got to meet the calf triplets and were able to pet them! Jeff, our tour guide was so friendly and explained things well. It was an informative and fun tour. The paninis we ordered were so yummy and the ice cream... More

Best ice cream ever and don't forget about chocolate milk!!!!! Very clean place for a cow farm. We made two trips when on vacation in Silver Lake. Took two gallons of ice cream back home. Loved it!

Tour the working dairy farm, all ages of cattle, the milk processing, bottling plant and cheese room. Then have lunch or dinner in the farm store. A great experience for young and old!

Always a fun place to visit. We go there every year. With the purchase of milk you get a bottomless cup. The food is good here and affordable. They also had gluten free pizza for my celiac girls. Why not 5 stars? This year when we were there a bike tour took over and it was super crowded. Also, they... More

Stopped here for lunch. Great wholesome food with homemade dairy items. Yours available of their dairy production area and small play ground for kids. Great local place to stop by and eat. Educational too.
