About the Farm Tours
Tours last approxiamately 1 1/2 hours. You will receive a guided tour of a working dairy farm and milk processing facility. Your tour will begin at our Visitor Center, the Moo School. Here you will be able to learn about the history of Country Dairy, dairy farming, and the dairy industry.
Next you will take our tour wagon where on your tour, you will be able to see our cows, how they are milked, and how milk is bottled (this is a working processing and bottling facility so there are times when the bottling may not be taking place while the tour goes through the plant. Thanks for your understanding).
At the close of your tour, you can sample our famous Premium Chocolate Milk, or try something we call “Moochies” (cheddar cheese curds). We’d also like to invite you to try a delicious meal at our new Farm Store and Deli. Enjoy a garden fresh salad, a hearty bowl of soup, or one of our meaty, farm-themed, panini grilled
sandwiches. And we hope you won’t miss the chance to try some of the best ice cream available in Michigan — ours!
