Ever wonder what goes into your glass of milk? Interested in learning more about the facts and myths about dairy and the care dairy cows/calves receive? Come to Family Farm Days at Richlands Dairy Farm the third weekend in June. Spend the day at the dairy browsing the educational booths and farm tours. Take the one hour walking tour to learn about how the cows and calves spend their time. During the farm tour you will have the opportunity to experience the cow feed sensory station, hand-milk a cow, and pet the calves. Relax on the hayride that travels through the barn yard, crop land, and past two picturesque ponds as it makes its 20-30 minute loop through the dairy farm.

Hungry for lunch? Try the menu items at Richlands Creamery or from one of the local food trucks who will be in attendance.
On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, from 1-4 PM, enjoy live music at the farm performed by Ben Dalton. At the end of the day, relax near Richlands Creamery's kid's play area, browse the craft vendors selling their homemade goods, and, of course, enjoy some of the area's best ice cream!
