This spot has an interesting museum with a worthwhile movie. After visiting the museum you can walk around the farm to see the animals. The highlight is the dairy barn where you can watch milking. Don't miss the house tour.

The gift shop has a lot of neat little things. Several cheddar cheese selections are available for purchase. The cheese can be purchased online. There are cows on the farm. A tour can be taken. Parking is free.
