Dakin Dairy has recently remodeled their entrance to the farm. There is always something going on there, and they have a great farm store where you can buy fresh milk, ice cream and all sorts of trinkets and treasures.

We took a seven and six years old boys to the dairy farm near Bradenton. The farm had a very good educational tour, hay ride, petting zoo, and playground. Everyone enjoyed the experience. The boys learned a lot about milk,butter, and dairy products.

It is a working dairy ranch - which is really neat! Gift shop/ cafe has good space but needs better signage.
