Fair Oaks Farm is a Disney experience in Indiana. Located just one hour south of Chicago this dairy farm has an adventure center that provides interactive displays to learn where milk comes from and its importance. The farm is one of the largest working dairies in the U.S. They milk 32,000 cows a day and 80 calves are born daily at the farm. A special room walled with plexi glass allows visitors to the farm to see calves being born every day. This U-Tube clip provides you with the experience. This is a great illustration of what agritourism operators can do on the farm.
