Our Farm Tour is a unique attraction to the Sarasota and Bradenton area, offering an experience that creates lifelong memories. Learn "Where Milk Comes From", learn how milk travels from the cow to the bottle, then taste the difference of truly fresh Dakin milk.

Tour the Milk Parlor year round, and get a first-hand look at how a cow is milked and see where all the yummy milk is stored. Then follow the flow into the Plant itself and learn about pasteurization, bottling, and cheese-making. Included in the tour October-May is a HAYRIDE around the farm and through the free-stall barns. Tour perks include tasting our Chocolate Milk and making your own butter. Also, you'll get to feed the resident livestock while learning about calves, goats, and sheep.  

Join us for lunch in our cafe, serving a wide selection of breakfast and lunch items, ice cream and homemade desserts.  Our chefs are always whipping up daily specials.  The Farm Market has fresh Dakin cheeses and milk available for purchase, along with Dakin souvenirs.
