Come meet, cuddle, brush, talk, and sit with our hand-raised cows at Appleton Farms! The mild heart rate and warm body temperature of the cows induces a slowing of our own heart rate, as well as the release of Oxytocin, our social bonding hormone. Visit our scenic and historic dairy farm and enjoy an hour-long Cow Connection session with our two Jersey Dairy Cows, Gray and Jasmine, and their new calves Gigi and Joanie. Enjoy both the scientifically-proven physiological benefits as well as the relaxing effects of being outside in the open air on our scenic historic farm. Not only can you enjoy the amazing benefits of Cow Connection, but Gray and Jasmine will also benefit from the love and affection you provide. This will help in their training, handling, and temperament, making them amazing educational cows for all of our programming.
The capacity of guests is low on these sessions to keep them small and intimate, providing the ability to tailor the time towards you and our cows. If you like to draw, sketch, paint, or take photgraphs, you are welcome to do so. Private bookings of this experience are also available on request.
Book now to relax and destress with our beautiful cows! Preregistration is required to guarantee your spot. Cow Connection will be cancelled in extreme weather situations. You will be notified by our educator in advance if your class has been cancelled due to weather.
