Real Working Farm: Fun and Educational Visit For The Whole Family
Updated: Mar 16, 2022
Have you ever had the opportunity to visit a real working farm? Born and raised in Southern California it's not every day you get to visit a farm, let alone milk a cow! That is why visiting Amy's Farm was such a treat. My daughter has a love for the outdoors and farm animals, so we headed to Ontario, California for an educational, fun, and hands on tour of Amy's Farm.
During our visit we decided to do a special guided tour. The tour included:
A walk through their sustainable garden where we got to pick and taste some of their fruits/veggies
A visit to their petting zoo
Feeding greens we picked to the farm animals
Milking a cow...Yes a real life cow!
We got our own tour guide Stephanie. She was such a delight and was so informative. Alexia was so excited to learn all about the animals, the veggies and how to milk a cow. We got to see and pick veggies like pomegranates, carrots, kale, asparagus, eggplant, peppers, spaghetti squash, and radishes. We saw pigs, cows, goats, sheep and horses. It was such a fun and educational hands on tour and its great for all ages. Our guide Stephanie gave us a demonstration on how to milk a cow and then she let us all give it a try and do it ourselves. It was definitely an experience. Alexia has been telling anyone and everyone that will listen that she got to visit a farm and was successful at milking a cow. She loved spending time with the goats and she could have stayed in there all day. Feeding the piggies was also a whole lot of fun.

Some Great & Important Things To Know About Amy's Farm
Amy's Farm is a polyculture farm which means that that everything from carrot tops to manure is usable/compostable and nothing is wasted. The farms is completely chemical free and their animals are humanely housed with plenty of space and open air. They use no antibiotics or hormones and they use no genetically modified seeds or feed at Amy’s Farm.
We also visited their store and enjoyed some treats like cold hibiscus tea which was a fave. Coffee is also available.
And because we visited during this time of year (fall season), they even had this cute little pumpkin patch.
This tour was everything we expected and more! I highly recommend you pay them a visit. To book your tour you can call 1-844-426-9732 or go to https://www.amysfarm.com/
