“Wholesome family "entertainment"!”

Calder's Dairy Farm
Ranked #1 of 4 things to do in Carleton
Attraction details
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We took our 3 & 4 year old sons today. Some friends of ours, also, came along with their 2 & 1 year old grandsons. The little fellows totally enjoyed exploring and learning about the MANY different farm animals. It is like a farm-version of a zoo!!! We all had a wonderful time. It was a beautiful, warm day for this outdoor activity.

We love going to Calder's by motorcycle, walking around to visit all the farm animals and eating their creamy homemade ice cream. You can watch the dairy cows being milked around 4pm every day. Fun to do while eating ice cream!

My family and I have enjoyed Calder's dairy for years. We were even excited to learn that they hooked up with Door to Door Organic's in Michigan. Image our horror while reading the label on their famous egg nog that it contains GMO (Corn syrup). Are family will not be buying anymore dairy from Calder's until this is removed. I will be letting all my family and friends no about this. Shame on you Calder's! If we wanted egg nog with corn syrup in it we could have just bought it at the stores.

It is a good place for the family, plenty of animals for kids to feed (calves, cows, pigs, donkeys, etc.). There's even an ox and horses! They sell food to feed the animals for $1.50 in the general store. They also have great ice cream and many flavors.

The public restrooms are 2 porta-potties...NO SINK TO WASH HANDS which can be a big deal for those who are petting and feeding animals then want to grab an ice cream! They have hand sanitizer available but there's just something about soap and water after you had a cow slobber his spit and snot all over your hand!!

Bring your camera!
