For Businesses and Institutional customers:
Dairy barn tours are available to the public for FREE on the weekends and by appointment on the weekdays. Come hike, mountain bike, have a picnic, fly a kite, walk the trails with your family, bring your own canoe and paddle the ponds, or trailer you horse and blaze the 1,000 acres of trails. Visit our petting zoo and feed the goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, and ducks. 130 Holstein cows reside at the farm and the ladies are some of the top producing cows in New England! Enjoy a phenomenal ice cream cone of your choice from 60 flavors of ice cream, yogurt, sorbet, and sherbet. Have a hot dog and cool down with a freeze or creamsicle drink. Feeling really hungry? How about a Bananna Split with your choice of 3 flavors and 3 toppings! Or if you're feeling a little nutty our Peanut Butter M & M sundae is sure to calm you down! Take a look through the glass viewing window and watch the cows in the barn. If you're lucky, you may even see a cow give birth! An observational beehive is located in the stand too and the honey from the Duffy's locally grown cranberry bog (within walking distance from Great Brook Farm State Park) is sold at the ice cream stand. Catch up on your dairy facts with our interactive fact board! Did you know cows have 4 stomachs? Learn about each one from our life-size diagram!
Parking is $3 per day.
