Visit this picturesque, working dairy farm in Randolph County that supplies goat and cow milk cheese to markets, stores and restaurants across the state and the region.

Our hike takes us along the stream that supplies nearby towns with clean drinking water. A farm tour follows - including a “sneak peek” at the newly enhancedcheese-making room. We will visit with the goats and seven week old chicks. Families and children welcome, no pets please! Wearsturdy walking shoes.
