What you'll do

Please contact me if you don't see a date that works for you!
Our farm tours are scheduled in the mornings to coincide with daily chores to allow guests the opportunity to experience daily farm life. Guests will be able to watch the cow milking process and even try their hand at milking! From there, we will explain the journey from cow to milk jug. Guests will learn about the different ages and stages of the dairy cow, from birth through adulthood. We will meet, pet, and even feed baby calves, explore the barns, and possibly even witness a new baby being born! Every tour is adjusted to meet the needs and interests of our guests. We strive to encourage our guests to participate hands-on, and encourage questions and ideas! We simply love to share our love of farming and our animals with others!

***All proceeds from our farm tours go directly to our nonprofit organization, Liberty Hill Center for Agricultural Education. ***

I married into a dairy farm family and have been unofficially running private small tours for 7 years. Guests visit to learn about local agriculture, small family farming, animal welfare, food systems, and environmental stewardship. We started a nonprofit organization to develop more programs for the public. My experience as a farmer allows me to understand farming, my life experiences allow me to connect others to farming in a tangible way. I am raising 3 children on the farm and have run educational farm programs for local students, as well as informal hands-on experiences with children.

Loved this experience! It's a must if you're in the Vermont area. My partner and I were able to milk cows, learn about dairy farming, and meet new people. Asia is an awesome host and so much fun! Highly recommend!

I was pretty excited for this tour but after having done it i was completely blown away. I learned so much about not only the internal workings of a dairy farm, but also alot of history about the state of vermont. I would absolutely 100% recommend this tour to everyone!!!

En momento tan difíciles fue una gran experiencia para nuestra familia el aprender todo el proceso y todo lo que conlleva tener una granja. El trato fue excelente próximo año planeamos volver a ir. Lugar espectacular para niños. Nuestras hija padecen de condiciones que en la mayoría de los lugar aveces no entienden y quieren que la limiten. En la granja pudieron pasarla bien bajo las medidas de seguridad adecuadas pero no limitándolas a correr o compartir con los animales. Valorizamos mucho el tiempo que nos brindaron y la forma que nos hicieron sentir. Muy agradecidos y recomendado 100%.

It was awesome to get up close and personal with the cows—from milking to petting them. Asia was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend if you’re in the area.

A great covid-safe thing to do! I got to bottle feed a newborn calf! They have a nursery of young calves to get up close to and pet. I got to milk a cow, and give scratches and receive friendly licks! I’d highly recommend bringing a group here. Asia, who’s husband runs the family farm gave a great tour! I enjoyed this experience more than I thought I would!
