Not born country? Get a taste of farm life at the Kuehnert Dairy Fall Festival

Saturday, August 24, 2013 - 3:22 pm

A Fort Wayne area family plans to show city folk about how a farm operates at the first Kuehnert Dairy Fall Festival to span five weeks in September and October.

Visitors can experience the daily operations of a working dairy farm and take part in a variety of fall entertainment options for all ages.

Brothers, Alan and Stan, along with Alan's wife, Cindy, their two sons Nathan (with his wife, Sarah, and children Allie and Bryar) and Andrew (with his wife, Brittany) are partners in a 300-cow registered Holstein herd.

While the farm currently offers personal guided tours throughout the year for special visitors, school field trips and group tours, they will now be offered as well during the fall festival.

The farm is at 6532 West Cook Road, off US 30 W. from US 33 N.

The festival will run Sept. 28-Oct. 27. Hours will be 6-10 p.m. Fridays; 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturdays; and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. General admission is $8 per person and children 3 and under are free.

School field trips, group tours, and private party events are all available by appointment; inquire for pricing and availability. To make a reservation, call 417-1918 or email: saf982@hotmail.com.

Admission covers all farm activities, including visiting the freestall barn, where the cows spend their time and eat; learning how baby calves are cared for; viewing modern farm machinery; visiting the 5-acre corn maze, and taking farm tours. Dairy snacks will be available.
