By appointment - Come experience the excitement of our local dairy farm while you learn how our milk is produced and bottled.
Shatto Milk Company schedules tours Tuesday through Saturday throughout the year. On our tours you can:
See the baby calves (you may possibly get to bottle-feed one yourself).
Milk a cow.
Get a first-hand look at where our cows live, what they eat, and how they are milked.
Learn how our milk is processed (this includes a tour of the processing plant or viewing the actual process, along with a description of each step our milk goes through before it ends up on your table).
Watch how our wonderful milk is packaged in our famous glass bottles and how those bottles are washed before being re-used.
Sample many of Shatto Milk Company's tasty products.
Tours typically last one and a half hours (1.5 hours) from start to finish. There is a $5 charge per person, and children two and under are free.
Best thing we did on our summer trip across the country. It is a must do for all families. You get to milk a cow and learn how they bottle the milk.
I am certain all ages will love the visit. They have great products as well, be sure to try the root beer milk.
What a blast! Shatto Milk Company is a family dairy farm and milk company. Call ahead or email to request a tour (you can bring a group or just your family).
The tours last about 1 1/2 hours and are great for all ages. You get to pet the calves, milk a cow, and watch the milk processing. The tour includes information about dairy cows, what they eat, how they live, and how milk gets from the cow to your table.
The tour is so fun. It ends with a sample of their different milks (which is fun for the kids). There is a country store which sales their products and some locally made stuff. I'm bringing a cooler when we go again this year (and we will and this time I'm bringing friends) to stock up.
The people are so friendy and family friendly. There are generally interested in answering your questions and ensuring you get the most out of your visit.
There is a picnic area where you can spread a blanket out for lunch if the grass is dry and weather allows.
