About the tour...
Ever wonder how cheese is made? Or what a day in the life of a dairy cow is like? Come see first-hand on one of our Jer-Lindy / Redhead Creamery farm tours.
First, you’ll visit the cow side of the farm : The Jer-Lindy dairy calves and heifers, the pregnant mama cows, and the milking parlor where they are milked twice a day. Next up comes the cheese plant, where you'll get an overview of the entire cheese-making process through our huge picture windows perfectly placed for kids and adults of all ages.
You’ll learn the history of our own dairy cheese story, the farm sustainability and conservation efforts we’ve implemented, have a mooooving conversation with some of our beautiful bovines, and last but not least watch a video on cheesemaking at Redhead Creamery and sample some ridiculously good cheese!
The farm tour lasts about 2 hours and does involve quite a bit of walking. Bring your walking shoes! However, our site is fully wheelchair and stroller accessible, so everyone is welcome.
Tours are $10 per person during our scheduled tour time. Please purchase your tour tickets at the top of this page.
