The SpringHouse was founded in 1975 by Sam and Bev Minor. They milked, processed, and bottled fresh milk along with operating a country store. Today, three generations of the Minor family continue to run this creamery, market, and eatery.
To celebrate their proud farm heritage, they invite you out to the farm to showcase dairy farming life in both olden days and modern times.
Go behind the scenes at a working dairy farm, shop from artisan crafters, enjoy live music, and delicious homemade food. Want to try a bygone way of having fun? How about a sack race? Maybe churn your own butter?
Farm tours are $6 per person. Tickets can be purchased on site at their ticket shanty.
To complete your experience, make sure to swing inside for their famous chocolate milk and a scratch made lunch or dinner.
