Manheim, PA 23 Oct
The Kreider’s Farm Tour offers a 90 minute tour of their state of the art dairy farm. With views of the Cow Palace, “Mooternity” barn and the milking “Cowrasel”. Kreider’s produces 1/3 of the milk for the Kosher market under the name Pride of the Farm. All their milk is produced according to laws of kashrus. A stamp of the Hebrew day of the month near the regular date shows that there was a mashgiach on site even if it is not bottled under the Pride of the Farm label.
The tour starts at the new Kreider’s Farms Welcome Center. There are various types of tours. Visitors can go on a bus tour, a trolley tour or a car tour where the guide is in his own car and the visitors follow behind in their car and tune into a radio station where the guide provides commentary and explanations of what is being seen.
The highlight of our tour was driving through the loafing barn also known as the cow palace and then watching the milking. It is truly fascinating. The cholav Yisrael chocolate milk we received at the end of the tour made it all the more delicious.
Outside the milking merry go round, children can try their hand at milking as there is a figure of a cow that sprays water into a pail when the children squeeze its udder.
The Silo Observation Tower with its spiral stair case circling the out-of-use genuine silo, affords visitors with a panoramic view of the area and farmland. Visitors must be 42 inches or taller to climb the tower.
