Farmer Barnes Dairy

Farmer Barnes’ Dairy is a proud working British Dairy Farm passionate about teaching people what happens everyday to produce milk for Award Winning Blue Stilton Cheese. Visiting a UK dairy farm allows you to see safely, the daily operation of producing milk and the loving care dairy farmers give to their herd, land and animals. We offer bespoke Farm Tours to schools to suit the needs of the visit. It's both a fun and educational way to experience life on a farm, see dairy cows close up, answer your questions and identify with the farmers who produce the wholesome dairy products your family enjoys. “Every child should meet a cow, take a tractor & trailer ride through open country and smell the fresh air on a real working dairy farm.”
