Plan a school trip to meet our cows, learn about life on the farm, and sample our famous chocolate milk.
A school tour at Country Dairy is like no other. Not only do we have cows, heifers, and calves for the children to see and pet, but we also have a manufacturing plant on site where we bottle our milk. That means that Country Dairy can help reinforce the Michigan education standards through both agriculture and manufacturing all in one tour!
It is our goal to supply your class with a fun-filled learning environment while on your tour. Country Dairy provides a variety of ways to learn, from film to hands-on activities. And don’t forget that the children get a wagon ride pulled by our nostalgic vintage tractor. Come visit us soon!

Meet the Cows
Our tour wagon will take you to the barns where you can meet the cows and calves. We will stop in our show barn to see and learn about milking cows with robots and see the best Holsteins in our registered herd.
With our present state restrictions, we will not be allowed to have people go through our bottling plant. Learn about our bottling plant to see where our milk is bottled and labeled.
Market & Cafe
Conclude your tour with a sample our famous Premium Chocolate Milk and something we call “Moochies” (cheddar cheese curds). Afterward, enjoy a great meal and top it off with an ice cream cone before you do a little shopping in our market.
