Farmer For A Day

What is "Farmer For A Day"?

A fantastic way for you to come and experience what life is really like on a modern dairy farm in the heart of the Cheshire milk field. Purchase a half day experience voucher today; an ideal gift for a Christmas or birthday present for that person in your life who enjoys something different.

Dairy farming has been in the Davis family for over 60 years, now in its third generation at Gorstage Green farm. We maintain a high standard of health and welfare of the Crosshillocks herd of pedigree Holstein cows.

Our aim is to give people the chance to come for a day and experience what life is like for a young dairy farmer running a one man business of 120 milking cows plus 90 followers. Your experience could include everything from milking the cows, feeding the baby calves, trimming cows feet or mucking out the bull.

The experience is an opportunity for someone to gain hands on experience of being a modern dairy farmer and an insight into how today's dairy farmer runs a family farm. A half day costs £100 per person but we do allow additional persons if they want to take photos during the day, for a nominal fee. A minimum age of 16 years old due to insurance policy covering the day.

What Does It Involve?

Daily tasks of milking, feeding and animal management of the herd, amongst other things, give you the chance to experience certain parts of the industry that can only be found on the farm and not in a book; at only £100 for half a day, we offer a great deal!
