Fun for the whole family!

This is a very nice friendly family farm. Been going here for years. Check their website out to see what time they bottle feed the baby's, that is the best experience.

This is a great dairy farm. There are cows, horses, roosters, cats, ducks, a pond, etc. Food to feed the animals can be bought in the store ($2.50) a bag. I shared my purchases with a couple young ladies who had fun feeding the goats and ducks. Sanitation stations are available for cleaning hands after touching the animals. I also... More

I've been taking her since she could walk. She loves it and asks to go see the "Moo Cows" all the time. They have mini horses, donkeys, goats, bunnies and peacocks, to name a few. Their Milk and Ice Cream is nothing short of Wonderful!!! Sweet little country dairy farm. We love it!! Even in the Rain!

The dairy farm is fun. You get to pet and feed animals and all that farm fun but the food is where it's at. We only get our dairy items from Calder's. They don't use hormones or anything and it tastes so much better. It's amazing. Stop and get some ice cream and try their other food too!

I can't say enough positive things about Calders. Amazingly delicious ice cream and dairy products and the coolest farm experience for families and ppl of any age. You are able to be hands on with a large variety of animals, and if there at feeding time, hand bottle feed new calves. Just fantastic. Employees are nice as well. Truly amazing... More

We have a 2 1/2 year old son and we drove an hour to see cows and calves. My son was excited to get close to them and pet them as we had done at Sandland Farms in Swanton Ohio. At Calder's you cannot get anywhere near the cows. I was at Calder's about 9 or 10 years ago and... More

My daughter loves to visit and asked almost every day. Go around 3 or 4 pm and get the chance to feed a calf. GREAT ice cream and a great learning experience to see a farm at work.

You just can't visit Carleton, Michigan, without taking time to visit the Calder Dairy Farm. Adults and children alike will enjoy this experience. They not only have cows, but, pigs, goats, ponies, horses, rabbits, geese, chickens, and other interesting animals. There are opportunities to feed and pet the animals. There is a lovely pond and picnic tables to sit and... More

I used to come here when I was a kid and I don't remember it being so disgusting. Most of the animals are living in poor conditions and there bodies show it. Animal control needs to be contacted to stop the cruelty. I'm very disappointed that a place I once loved has gone down hill so badly. I know farms... More
