The Frerichs family welcomes you to enjoy a day on their farm! Four generations of the Frerichs family have been milking Jersey cows just outside La Grange for over 65 years; that means we've milked cows over 47,500 times!! Presently, approximately 100 cows are milked twice every day at the farm. We also farm 740 acres for pasture and hay. To our family, and everyone here at the dairy, farming is an every day career that is both enjoyable and demanding. We understand however, that many people never have the opportunity to see where milk comes from and what has to happen for a gallon of milk to appear at your favorite grocery store. We would like nothing more than to share our "dairy fun" days with you!
