Homeland Creamery
Homeland Creamery Day Trips for Kids in NC

A sweet taste of farm life
Homeland Creamery is a family owned dairy farm and it is operated by the Bowmans. They are seventh generation farmers who have been raising cows on the same homestead since the 1930s when their grandfather’s family started selling “barnyard milk” from only six dairy cows that were milked by hand.  

 

The herd has grown to over 200 cows and the cows are now milked with automatic milking machines.  The cows seem to be family too! Reservations for tours are required. The cost is $6 per person (ages 2 and up).

A Work of Art to Welcome the Arrival of Every Guest!
