Fair Oaks Farms offers experiences that you couldn't imagine and you'll never forget!
We are not only committed to educating the public about modern farming efforts, but also to protecting the environment, caring for our animals and ensuring the highest quality products possible.
Fair Oaks Farms brings Reduce, Reuse, Recycle to a whole new light. Our entire facility runs on cow & pig manure. We transform our farms' waste into energy by way of our anaerobic digesters, we reduce our dependency upon natural gas and electricity during the milk and manufacturing process. In 2013, the use of CNG will reduce the amount of diesel that our milk tanker/trailers use by 2 million gallons; the amount used in 2011. Our barns and plants are also powered by this cutting edge "poo power".
Sustainability isn't just something we claim, it's how we live.

The best designed, best managed, and most family friendly farm I've visited. The tours to cow farm and pig farm are very impressive. Their 72-cow milk carousel runs 24x7x365, producing 380,000 gallons milk a day! This carousel is showcased at Farm TECH section in the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. Well worth the 20 dollars per person. Highly recommended!!
Great place! So much relevant ag information & important facts. We did everything except eating at the restaurants. The pig & dairy tours were amazing even to those of us in our group who are farmers. The birthing barn is exciting. The crop building was very interactive and fun.
