I was in need of vanilla ice cream to serve with fresh picked blueberries.
I was surprised how early they opened on a Saturday morning. I made the 12 mile bicycle ride and arrived about 8:30am.
I was surprised at the few number of people there. I bought a 1/2 gallon of Grandpa’s Vanilla, a pound of excellent looking lean ground beef, a packet of jerky (a snack for the ride) and a Reece’s peanut butter brownie. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Mine was the only bicycle in the bike rack while I was there, but a foursome riding the trail from Hart arrived as I was leaving.

Their ice cream is always great and a full 1/2 gallon. Their freezers are very cold and it made the hour long ride home on my backpack wrapped in a beach towel and an ice pack with no problem. The plastic tubs are also reusable for other things.
The jerky was good but not exceptional.
The lean ground beef looked a lot leaner than the regular ground beef but the % numbers were not listed on the label.
The two were the same price per pound.
The brownie was excellent. Everyone had a little and it was enjoyed by all.
I stopped by the Woodshed bike shop along the trail on my return trip only to find that it was not open yet.
They service bicycles and also rent them for use on the trail. By the looks of the vehicle with the empty bike rack in their parking lot, someone used it as a staging area to ride the very gentle trail. I don’t blame them because there are some tough hills and busy roads between there and the Silver Lake area.

Plan on two hours to include the tour (1:15 minutes) and make sure you are hungry (and thirsty). All the food is really good - especially the dairy items as you might expect. Ice cream flavors are fantastic. I had the peanut butter and the kids had malts. Nice to see lines for milk rather than sodas!

Highly recommend!

We planned this as an early afternoon meal.
This group has done well with the meal, dairy sales, and location. Expect a wait line for the dairy products. They have a drive up window!

Our meal was ordered and brought to us. There was a endless cup of milk to enjoy before, during and after the meal. In the burger basket were cheese pieces next to the pickle. Delicious meal. Our family children played for hours on the playground equipment.

Dry covers were next to the picnic area for people to enjoy.

Thanks servers and kind people.

This is a great place to stop to eat. They have a wide variety of sandwiches, hamburgers, salads, soups, shakes, sundaes, hand dipped ice cream, pizzas, and subs.

The best thing is if you like milk, you can get a bottomless cup of milk for $1. 2%, skim, and chocolate milks are all available. You pour your own and it is real cold. If you get a sandwich or salad you get the bottomless cup included in the price.

The prices are very reasonable and you can also purchase various ice cream, cheeses, curds, meat, and sauces to take with you.

Stop here often if the desire strikes for some good rich ice cream or a lunch sandwich. I especially like the Nutty Java Moo, but they don't always have it. With a sandwich, the bottomless cup of chocolate milk is fantastic. Can't drink just one glass, and I always gain weight.

Took kids yesterday. The tour was informative yet fun. The kids enjoyed petting the baby calves and loved the samples of cheese curds and chocolate milk at the end. We had cheese stuffed crust pizza for lunch which was amazing and indulged with delicious ice cream for dessert. They have indoor and outdoor seating and a playground for kids. We even took home fresh lean ground beef and steaks from their meat market and cheese and milk from their store. All was affordable.

Fun place to stop with friends/family. We called ahead and asked for a tour of the farm. It was quite the educational experience. We enjoyed it very much. The young man who guided us was very knowledgeable and very passionate on what the farm does for the community. We also purchased food items in their store and ate them on the premises. Great ice cream too. It does cost a minimum fee for a tour.

We (my husband, 3yr old, and I) were visiting White Lake with another family with toddlers. It rained our second day, so we looked for rainy day activities. We were happy to learn about this place. It was about a 20 minute drive from our rental home. We decided to do a noon dairy tour. We had lunch before that. Food was great. Burgers were delicious and came with a side of cheese curds. Love! With your meal was a little plastic cup of happiness- unlimited milk from the milk machine. There was 2% white and chocolate options. I must have drank my weight in chocolate milk, a weakness of mine. The tour lasted about an hour and a half. I was a little nervous about this with a 2, 3, and almost 4 yr old with us. It was fine. Multiple stops and was very informal. Kids loved riding on the tractor "train." When tour was over, the rain had stopped and they got to play in their playground. Ice cream was included with the kids meals as well, which they loved. Great time!!
