Are You Ready for a Farm Day?

Many farmers in the Southeast offer their local communities fun opportunities to visit the farm. Some of these opportunities include on-farm stores that sell local products, farm tours for the entire family, and special events offering nostalgic fun with corn mazes, live music, and more. This fall, discover some of the dairy farms in the Southeast ready to provide plenty of fun for everyone in the family.

Richlands Dairy and Creamery

Richlands Dairy is a third-generation dairy farm in Dinwiddie, Virginia, that bottles its own milk and makes ice cream. The Jones family has an on-farm store where visitors can purchase their products. They often host events on the farm, such as classic car cruise-ins and cookie decorating classes. Visitors can book a hayride farm tour at their website. Be sure to check out the farm on October weekends for a corn maze, pumpkin patch, and other activities the entire family will love.

Simply Natural Creamery
