Experience Our Modern Dairy Farm

 
 
Ride the Moo Town Trolley to North Harbor Dairy for a fun and fascinating tour of our state-of-the-art calf barn, heifer barn, 1000 cow free stall dairy barn, and round-the-clock modern milking parlor.
  • Learn how baby calves are raised and watch them drink from their robotic feeders!
  • See as many as 100 baby calves, as young as 1 day old!
  • Watch as dairy cows are milked in a modern milking parlor on our family’s fifth generation farm. We milk 24 hours a day!
  • Discover details about the computer technology that helps track a cow’s daily production of milk, her food and nutritional intake, and her breeding and delivery dates!
  • Ask questions about how farms contribute to our food supply and to the communities that we live in.
  • You’ll visit and learn about the 1000+ head of cattle that reside at the farm!
COVID Transition update:
As this is the summer of social distancing, we are only able to offer private tours of North Harbor Dairy, by reservation only. The details are as follows:
*$30 for up to 15 people. The tour will be for your family/ group ONLY.
*Reservations must be made at least 3 days before requested tour date. We need to schedule a staff member for your tour. And this is a working farm, so we also need to accommodate the daily activities of the dairy farm and not interfere too much.
* The tour will be 45 minutes - 1 hour long, depending on your questions!
*The tour is on a wagon. The wagon does have three steps to get into it. The tour will stop at the milking parlor and guests will be able to get off and view milking. **The milking parlor is cleaned from 2-4 pm- there is no milking during this timeframe.
*Admission to Old McDonald's Farm is required to do the private dairy tour in addition to the tour fee, and we do ask that you do the online reservation for your admission to Old McDonald's Farm.
* Call us 315-583-5737 or email Julia@OldMcDonaldHasAFarm.com to request your family's private tour of North Harbor Dairy.

You’ll enjoy the dairy tour so much, you’ll forget you are learning!
