Middleton Farms: A Family Tradition
Middleton Farms is a family owned, working dairy farm. The farm began in 1948 and is now operated by the second and third generations. Visitors can experience our farm on field trips, summer camps, and for private parties. Come learn how the Middleton family plants, harvests and grows the crops for the family's dairy cows. See a live cow-milking demonstration and learn how milking has changed over the years.
This fall will be our sixth year to invite guests to our Pumpkin Patch. We offer hands-on, educational tours where students learn about the dairy cow, the routines on the dairy farm, and how dairy is an important part of our diet. During the fall, students tour a real pumpkin patch and see a variety of pumpkins. Our spring field trips include a focus on how seeds grow; what grows under, on, and above the ground; and the role bees and butterflies play in pollination. Student see bee hives and hear how bees are valuable in local community.
