A Bit About Hastings Dairy Farm Located in Geauga County, Hastings Dairy Farm is a 3rd generation family-owned farm that is home to a herd of 600 Holstein milk cows, dry cows and lots of calves. The working farm also grows corn, grass hay, Sudan grass and rye grass to feed their animals.
CowTales Adventure This celebration of farm life includes a variety of both outdoor and indoor family-friendly, educational activities that all ages can enjoy. Visitors will be able to take a guided tour of the Farm's milking parlor to watch the cows being milked (Watch the milk move from the cow to the dairy!). Special Note: The cows are milked three times a day. Guests will also be able to visit the calf area where they can pet the calves and interact with them.
Other activities include a wagon ride tour of the Farm to see where the cows reside, riding pedal tractors, participating in games like corn hole, a ring toss and a bean bag toss and making crafts. And don't forget to get into the corn box.
The kids can also enjoy a farm-themed outdoor playground and an indoor Junior Dairyman play area. And make sure you take a ride on the Chugga Chugga Moo Moo Train.
Hastings Dairy Farm is open regardless of weather. No reservations are necessary. Because it is a working farm, it is highly recommended that guests wear boots or old shoes.
