Local Tour

This is a fun place, especially if you have children. This is a wonderful little farm that makes their own cheeses, ice cream, soaps and other dairy items as well as organic beef and sausage. They have a baby goat nursery where you can cuddle baby goats ($5 fee) and they also provide farm tours for a fee (which also includes baby goat cuddling). They have many different farm animals to see and pet. One of my favorite things here in Smithville! Harmony Lane is about 10 minutes from our place.
