Fair Oak Farms

Exciting, Educational & Entertaining

The desire to educate, entertain and return something to an industry that has been a part of their families for generations is what led nine dairy families to create Fair Oaks Farms.  Located in Northwest Indiana, Fair Oaks Farms is a heartland dairy located on over 20,000 acres and milking 32,000 cows; it offers a fun-filled experience for the whole family.

A growing number of Americans have a desire to revive their rural roots generations after their families left farming in search of the city.

Fair Oaks Farms is good for the environment, good for the cows, and they’re proud to produce products that are good for you.  During your visit, you will notice these “good for you” messages repeated throughout the 7 Wonders of Fair Oaks.

One of these wonders is the imaginative, highly educational, Grass to Glass exhibit hall located in the Adventure Center.  The exhibit hall was created to fulfill the need of educating the public about the dairy’s role in environmental preservation.  In keeping with the themed focus of “being good for the environment,” the first exhibit showcases how Fair Oaks Farms protects the soil and water for future generations.  Highlighted in the succeeding exhibit are the anaerobic digester and the overall process of turning manure, a waste product, into a usable resource.  In turn, the exhibit literally takes the visitor from “grass,” the land and feed, to “glass,” the finished dairy product.
