Get Out of the Cold

Lots of Warm Family Fun Inside!

Temperatures are dropping and the snow is beginning to fall; so what is there to do to escape the cold this winter? Fair Oaks Farms offers plenty of things to do for you and your family to kick the cabin fever and make some toasty memories out at the farm.
FOF_JanBlog3 Take the day and explore the farm with your kids. Get them out of the house and into a fun and exciting environment full of education and exploring. Watch the 3D/4D movie and learn how our milk goes from Grass to Glass. Check out how strong you are by challenging each other on the magnetic wall in the activity center of The Dairy Adventure. Watch a little calf being born in our Birthing Barn.
