School Field Trips to the Farm!
Our Dakin Dairy School Field Trip program is an educational and entertaining school field trip program and an excellent tool to help inspire your students thirst for learning about sustainability, nutrition, and agriculture.
What Will My Tour Include?
On the Dairy Tour...Your actual tour (about 1-1/2 hours) includes a hayride through the freestall barns, see where our mama cows are milked and where all the yummy milk is stored before it’s bottled. Bottle feed baby calves, hand feed goats and sheep, enjoy the bunnies and watch the pig races. Get a first-hand look at how a cow is milked. You will also visit the Processing Facility. Children will learn how milk gets from the cow, to the processing room, bottled, packaged and to the grocery store! Tour perks include....tasting our delicious whole or chocolate milk.

Families, large and small groups (and individuals, too!) are invited to come out to Dakin Dairy Farms and learn about when farming was a way of life for most of our ancestors. Everyone should learn that their food, including milk, is produced on a farm.
