Looking for an adult animal experience? Check out Cow Connection!
Come and meet, cuddle, brush, scratch, 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. 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 do people get to enjoy the amazing benefits of Cow Connection, but Gray and Jasmine will also benefit from the love and affection. This will help in their training, handling and temperament; making them amazing educational cows for all of our programming.
If you like to paint, draw or take photographs you are invited to do so. Cow Connection classes are small and and are custom tailored for you and your group.
Book now to connect with Gray and Jasmine and relax and destress with our beautiful cows!
