Come join one of our dairy farmers on an educational pasture walk to learn all about cows! 

During this program, you will take a brief walk from the dairy barn to the pasture that the dairy cows are grazing in that day. Distance will vary on the week because our cows are rotated throughout the farm, and our farmer will teach you about our rotational grazing program during this short walk. Once we reach the cows, our farmer will give you a short summary about the dairy girls; from anatomy and milking, to breeding and calving. We will be happy to answer any and all questions you have about the cows. You will be able to walk along the cows, however at this time, we cannot let visitors have contact with the animals due to health and safety precautions. 

We recommend sneakers or hiking shoes for the walk out to pasture. Most of the walk is along hiking paths that are fairly flat and easy walking. This program is open to families, but keep in mind it will be a short walk both to the pasture, and back. 

We look forward to seeing you at Appleton for a pasture walk!

Please note: Participants will be asked to follow Covid-19 related guidelines, including wearing face coverings and maintaining social distance. If you are experiencing symptoms, please do not attend the event.
