The calf experience is a unique opportunity to come meet our calves one on one, learn about raising calves, milking cows and spend some time brushing, feeding and relaxing with the calves. Just sit and enjoy being in the calm company of these gentle animals. Our calves are raised with their mothers and it is important that they are exposed to people often. You get to come help us with this task! We encourage you to sit with the calves and enjoy their calming energy, a lot of people refer to this as cow therapy or cow meditation. Studies show being around the calves reduces stress and depression, promotes positivity and social bonding. It releases oxytocin, serotonin and dopamine, reducing the stress hormone cortisol. Come put away your worries and be mindful and present on our farm with our animals. FAQ's Q. Am I allowed to bring a friend? A. Yes, but please keep it to just one other person. To keep our calves from becoming overwhelmed we limit each booking to 2 people. Q. What should I wear? A. Wear your farm clothes! No sandals or open toe shoes. Q. Can I bring my child? A. We ask that your child be age 10 or up. Q. Can I use this time to meditate or journal? A. Absolutely! But please be aware that this session will take place inside our barn which can get noisy at times with all the animal sound and farm stand. We do have classical music playing in the barn to help with relaxation. Have more questions? Please reach out.
