welcome to real milk in dutchess county

Dairy farms were once a common sight in Dutchess County....But today, there are but  four in the Town of Washington. 

Shunpike Dairy remains, and hopes to not only continue the tradition of dairy farming, but also to open its doors to the community, both young and old alike. 

Here, you can learn the art of dairy farming -- talk to the farmer that operates it, meet the cows, the calves, the pigs, our horse, dog and cats, experience life on a farm, or just buy raw milk.

All visitors, including well-behaved children, are welcome to enter the barn and meet our cows and calves. Milking time is 6am and 5pm if anyone would like to watch the cows get milked.
