This is by far the best farm tour! Real farm life by a dedicated, and smart farm family. You will come away with a great understanding of how your dairy is produced, along with a variety of other farm animals and crops. We go every year with our extended family and they all love it! Take your kids and grandkids - but you will enjoy all the information and hands on fun!

Tina-the-farmer is personable, funny and knowledgeable. We had a a wonderful time understanding the new science behind modern farming. The geese, pigs, sheep, goat and cows add to the charm. Her puppies are fun, too. No credit cards to pay for the tour. Cash only.

My husband and I took this farm tour in the hopes of milking a cow and hearing a little about how a farm runs. Our expectations were so vastly surpassed it is indescribable! First, Tina is so very passionate about her family business and life. She is amazing. Her depth of knowledge about her business is most impressive. She educated us all on science, the farming and dairy industry, all that goes into running a dairy farm, growing crops, animal care and so much more. The farm and animals are extremely well cared for. The robotic milking machines are mind blowing! We were up close and personal with everything on this farm! I mean everything! So make certain to wear comfortable closed in shoes that you don’t care if they get a little poop on them! We toured the inner workings of the farm on a wagon. Made it easy and fun. We milked a cow, visited the calves. Dory was just 3 days old and already mischievous! She squeezed out of her pen to come visit with Tina and us. Bonnie, the farm dog was with us the entire time. You can tell she is also passionate about her job on the farm! My husband and I both left with so much more insight into what happens to get a glass of milk on the table. This experience (much much more than a tour) was the highlight of our vacation!! There were 6 adults on the tour and I think I can say we were all engaged the entire experience. Thank you Tina for a wonderful day. And a big thank you to your entire family for your commitment and hard work!

This was a bit like a real life documentary. We got to learn some science, technology, economics, and biology. It was super cool getting some unexpected info, too - like some of the farm’s actual finances. Was pleasantly surprised to see some pretty high-tech stuff, too, like the laser-guided cow-milking robots. (This is not a joke. Our robot overlords have even infiltrated the farms. :P) The farm was also surprisingly clean. I guess I expected a farm to be a tad...messier. But everything had lovely landscaping and was very tidy and organized. The place is a quick and easy drive from Madison and very much worth the $20. If you’re in Madison and even a little bit nerdy, this is a must-do.

What a fabulous way to spend 2 hours finding out about farming and milk a cow! We were a groups of adults and all 6 of had a great time and learned a lot. Tina is a superb guide, so passionate about farming and her animals and incredibly knowledgeable. The tour was great as an adult but the kids in the tour group also loved it! Suitable for all ages! Thank you for sharing your farm with us!
