The Fair Oaks Farm Dairy Adventure™


The Fair Oaks Farm Adventure™ Center is a cooperative effort of the Lake States Dairy Farmers Inc. and Southwest Dairy Museum. These non-profit organizations have joined resources to bring a unique and comprehensive look at modern dairy farming and the benefits of dairy products.


The Fair Oaks Farms Adventure™ Center is not your ordinary information center. Located on an operating dairy farm it offers exhibits that explain how the dairy industry protects the environment, cares for the dairy cows, and ensures the highest quality milk possible. You tour the dairy farm and see the milking process first hand. And of course, the dairy processing plant where you can see cheese and ice cream made right before your eyes.

tHE nATURE cONSERVANCY


In 1996 the Indiana Chapter acquired ithe 7,209-acre Kankakee Sands Preserve located within the historic lakebed of Beaver Lake. It is surrounded by high-quality, protected natural areas; including 640 acres at Beaver Lake Nature Preserve, 809 acres at Conrad Station Savanna, significant portions of Willow Slough Fish and Wildlife Area and, in Illinois, over 2,500 acres at the Iroquois County State Conservation Area and Hooper Branch Savanna. The preserve is a remnant of Indiana’s native prairies and is an excellent example the Conservancy’s landmark restoration efforts. While past conservation efforts have focused on protecting these sites individually, this restoration effort is designed to heal the intervening landscape that isolates the sites, effectively creating a single, landscape-scale conservation area.
