Expérience avec des animaux organisée par Dana & This Is Farmer Jess

2 heures
Inclus : nourriture
Jusqu'à 5 personnes
Proposée en Anglais

Au programme

Visit our 900-acre certified Biodynamic, organic, and Animal Welfare Approved farm and help our dairy herd manager bring the cows in from their day out grazing on pasture. Depending on which field they’re in, and how the cows are behaving, this portion of your visit can take anywhere from 30-90 minutes.

If we finish closer to the 30 minute time frame, there will be the opportunity to participate in additional farming activities which may include helping with milking, brushing cows, and helping to feed grain.

We ask that you join us with a sense of open-mindedness. When working with animals, the schedule revolves around them. Some days the cows are eager to get back to the barn, while on other days they are less cooperative and need more encouragement - or the calves can decide to be mischievous and scamper off! Bring your sense of adventure and an appreciation for spontaneity as, really, anything can happen!

Once you're done helping with farm chores, visit our store for a 'made on our farm' organic yogurt and granola snack.

I am the current herdsperson managing our 65-head Biodynamic dairy herd. I have also worked in veterinary hospitals and have a particular affinity for cows, which I've been known to express through my artwork.

Le lieu

We will be mostly outdoors on our 900-acre Biodynamic farm, walking the cow paths and fields, and experiencing the natural beauty and magic of our little valley - sometime referred to by visitors as 'Happy Valley'. Back at the barns, we will spend some time in our milking barn, or the loafing barn, depending on which additional farming activities we'll be doing - helping with milking, brushing cows, or feeding some supplemental grain.

We brought our animal loving daughters (ages 6 &8) to the farm for cow herding. They absolutely loved being able to bring the cows in from pasture, groom them and even milk them! We visited the friendly barn kittens and other animals around the farm. The baby calves were the highlight. We really enjoyed our experience here and Farmer Jess was very knowledgeable and was very patient and bubbly while showing the children different activities and skills around the barn. Would definitely come again! Great job!

I had done this before and loved it, so I came back with my daughter and grandchildren. We all had such a great time! The sun wasn't out much, but all of our shining smiles made up for it! Farmer Jess told great stories, and the girls (6 and 8) showed no fear! In fact, one was so into it, I think she may have found her calling... How awesome is that?!

My only hesitation in writing this review is fear that they will get too busy! My children, 9 and 12yo, my dad (80yo), and I shared a magical two hours with Farmer Jess! We herded cows, learned about more responsible farming, milked cows, bottle fed calves, and had the most magical afternoon! We pride ourselves on fun adventures. This one blew us away! Do not miss this!!

I taught visiting students at Hawthorne Valley Farm years ago and remember how important the authentic work and the connection to animals was to kids. I wanted to share this with my kids. Thank you farmer Jess for taking the time to fully include us in your work.

I work in the finance department for Hawthorne Valley, and was so excited when this opportunity arose to work with the animals. Yes, I had high expectations, and this exceeded all of them! Keeping this at a maximum of 5 people is perfect! By the end of the day, I felt bonded to Farmer Jess and the family that shared this experience with me. There were two children, ages 6 and 8, and they had a fantastic time! They had no fear whatsoever with the cows, and really enjoyed feeding and milking them when we got back to the barn. I'm hooked! I plan to do this again with my daughter's family, and a third time with my friend's family. This is a once in a lifetime experience! Do yourself a favor, and bring your family with you. It's a shared experience that none of you will ever forget, and which you will always look back on as a loving, fun-filled family adventure!!!

A hidden gem of an experience! This small group experience goes well beyond a simple tour and you truly get to herd the cows in from the pasture, learn to milk and care for the gals, and see what makes this magnificent dairy run. We left really feeling like we knew how the dairy cows were cared for and the kids (8 and 11) loved the hands on experience. We would do it again no doubt. Farmer Jess did a great job explaining her job and including the kids in the tour! Thank you!
