Fair Oaks Farms takes visitors through the dairy process "from grass to glass" and beyond to cheese and ice cream. The farm is the collaboration of nine dairy farmers whose 3,000 cows form the center of an educational agritourism experience which includes an Adventure Center, the interactive exhibits and a Cow Palace theater, a 45 minute bus tour and the Milking Parlor. The final stop is the Fair Oaks Café, where you can order a grilled cheese sandwich made from your choice of 3 varieties of the farm's own cheese for $4.95. Soups, sandwiches, salads and burritos are also served, along with Starbucks coffee. Freshly made ice creams, milkshakes and sundaes are served in the ice cream parlor. The adjacent store sells pints of the ice cream and the fine array of Fair Oaks cheeses. Randy Krahenbuhl, a certified Master Cheesemaker, oversees the production of 22 cheese varieties, including havarti, sweet Swiss, Muenster and international award-winning gouda and Emmenthaler.
