At High Lawn, we love to have children and adults experience the life of our family-owned, small dairy farm, one of the few remaining in Massachusetts. It is vitally important that we all know where our food comes from and understand the process behind its production. Too often we become disconnected from the reality of the source of the very food we’re eating.
Students of all ages visiting with their school will be greeted by one of our High Lawn Farm team, then walk down to the barns to meet the cows and calves—our Jerseys are really the friendliest of the bovine kingdom— and to see our state-of-the-art robotic milking system. Non-stop questions and answers happen throughout! Of course, the visit would not be complete without samples of High Lawn products.
We wish we could welcome schools and other visitors at any time! But because we are a busy, working dairy, all tours must be pre-arranged. To schedule a visit for your school, just call our office at 413-243-0672. Our office staff will be delighted to arrange a tour for you.
Coming in the near future, we plan to have a permanent structure dedicated to educating the public, where we can welcome tours and offer lectures and workshops about what we do and small farming in general. Stay tuned…
