Raw Dairy Farm Tour: Golden Guernsey of Illinois

  • Golden Guernsey of Illinois

    387 S. Malta Rd , Malta, IL (map)

    41.922218 -88.933868

  • Come tour the farm and meet the farmers.  Learn the how's, why's and what's of raw dairy farming.  Walking tour, so bring your boots.  Children welcome and encouraged to attend.

    The cows graze on pasture and are milked in a barn. These pasture based Guernsey cows are treated with tender love and care, receiving a well balanced organic or all natural based diet.  The Boges recenlty built a milkhouse which can store the milk immediately in a bulk tank. The tank will chill the milk in a matter of 10 minutes. This process will keep the guernsey milk cold and lasting longer.

    Can you give us some details on the length of time this tour is expected to last, and if we should bring a lunch, picnic on the grounds, eat later, etc.

      Tour will last about 2 hours or less. I am checking on options following the tour. I believe there are a bunch of great nature preserves in the area we can consider as well.
