Farm School
Before we left Indiana last week, we took the boys to the Fair Oaks dairy. It was quite an adventure. We rode a bus around the farm and saw the cows, the calves, the feed and the milking rotary station. Then we went to the interactive cow museum where we could practice milking cow statues with the mechanical milkers, watch a movie about how cows convert feed to milk, and play other milk-related games. Next we stopped by the restaurant for grilled sweet swiss cheese sandwiches and ice cream. The day was topped off with a romp outside in the hay maze. (We didn't have time for the corn maze, but it looked awesome). It really was an impressive operation and, if you're in northern Indiana (or Illinois), I'd highly recommend it. (And its free, too!)
