On our way from Chicago to Branson, Missouri, we came upon a farm. We had actually stopped for gas and it said there was homemade ice cream. I said to my hubby, let’s get some. Before we went in, we noticed next door a huge farm with lots of signs and lots of people. I said lets stop and see what it’s all about.
Fair Oaks Farms is an escape to the country with acres of great outdoor fun, food and learning where you can explore family farms and reconnect with nature, animals and our planet.
There was a restaurant and gift shop where there was a lot of people. The line for the ice cream was long, so we figured it must good. We waited about 15 minutes so it wasn’t that bad. We had a Brown Cow Sundae ~ Waffle cone pieces, Brownie, Ice Cream, Hot Fudge and Caramel. And lets not forget the whip cream! It was awesome. Now we knew why there were so many people in line.
After that, we headed over towards the other building. You could visit the birthing facilities, see the farming lifestyle on the modern farm, play in the activity center and so much more. We just checked out the fake cows and pretended we were milking them. I know, lame, but we were having fun. We didn’t want to take up too much time, because we were still a ways from our destination.
Just walking around the property was a treat in itself. The flowers were amazing and we got to see some Coy fish in the pond too.
If you are ever in the Fair Oaks, Indiana area, be sure to stop in at Fair Oaks Farms. Even if just for an ice cream, you won’t be disappointed.
