Fair Oaks Farms, A High Tech Dairy Farm Where We Saw Cows Give Birth!
We never thought that a dairy farm would be so cool! This was an unplanned stop on our road trip, taking the place of the other things we thought we’d be doing in Indiana, and it was such a fun, beautiful, educational day! We learned that Fair Oaks Farms is the largest agricultural tourist site in the U.S., and they are leading the way in technological and eco-friendly advances in farming. We got to try some of the cheese and ice cream made right on site. And a highlight for us was watching mama cows give birth to calves. It was really incredible and deeply moving to witness animals giving birth like that. But what we loved the most about this stop is the conversation it started in our household. It made us think differently about the food we eat and how it’s produced. It brought a new level of awareness to us when it comes to the food we eat. And that’s never a bad thing.
Join us as we make our way around the U.S. (for now) and eventually the world, sharing the sights, flavors, and stories we come across as we go. We're Stephen & Andie – travel creators from Los Angeles, now based in North Carolina. We're excited to share our adventures with you!
