Tours have returned to the Dairy!
Our Dakin Dairy Farm Tour is one of the most unique family activities in the Sarasota and Bradenton area. Bring the family and your friends to learn “Where Milk Comes From” and how milk travels from the cow to the bottle. After, you will have a chance to taste the difference of our fresh Dakin milk!
You’ll start by getting up close and personal with our girls in the free stall barns. Next, tour the Milk Parlor and get a firsthand look at how a cow is milked and see where we store our products. Then, follow the flow into the plant itself and learn about pasteurization, bottling, and cheese-making.
Tours include tasting our chocolate and whole milk and making your own butter. You’ll also get to feed the resident livestock while learning about calves, goats, and sheep. These tours are educational in addition to entertaining! We’re here for school field trips and group tours.
Tours cost $8 per person plus tax (children under are 2 free) and will run Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with 2 times slots available for each day, 9:30 & 1:00. Tours are an hour to an hour and a half. Reservations are mandatory. Purchase your tour reservations via our online booking system.
