Start Your Adventure with New Heights

Join us in the Pig Adventure to learn all about the magnificent pig.

Our Pig Adventure is an inside, educational look at the life of a pig here at Fair Oaks Farms.  You will learn about how our farmers “shower in” in order to protect our pigs from disease.  Check out our interactive sonogram and see how many piglets the expecting mother is having.  See a newborn piglet up close, learn about new farm technology and see the different stages of a pig’s life.

The Pig Adventure ropes course requires a $5 additional cost with admission & is open from Memorial Day-Labor Day.

See a Baby Pig Up Close

Get the opportunity to see a baby pig up close.

Some of the newborns that you will get to see will only be 5 minutes old. Check out how quickly they learn to walk and have the opportunity to ask our farmers questions about the farm.

Definitely Worth the Stop!

“Neat experience- you can tour the dairy and the pig barns for the ultimate experience! They stop at the swine barn and you take a tour of the building where there is a lot of interactive things for kids to do. You can give a fake pig an ultrasound and there’s a birthing unit where you can watch baby piglets being born. Then, back at the main spot, you can go to a separate barn where they bring laboring cows to deliver so you can watch that also. Then, of course, there’s a shop and restaurant. Definitely worth the stop….especially if you have kids!”
