Dexter The Dog and his BFF Levi visited the South Shore along Lake Michigan and spent the day at Fair Oaks Farms. When I’m planning a dog-friendly road trip, I always try to find unique dog-friendly attractions. Fair Oaks Farms more than met my expectations.
Fair Oaks Farms is a working farm focused on transparency, reduce, reuse, and recycling efforts. Their goal is to achieve a zero carbon footprint. Fair Oaks Farm is extremely proud of their farming efforts, and in 2004 they opened their doors to the public. They are recognized as the #1 agritourism destination in the Midwest. Visitors can experience agriculture through their various activity centers. They host various events all year long including concerts and fun adventure activities.
Farm guests can experience Fair Oaks Farms at their own pace. With acres of fun both indoors and out, you and your dog will have a doggone good time. Dogs are encouraged to visit the farm’s outdoor attractions and walking paths. Because of the food production, indoor attractions are reserved for humans only.
The Farmhouse Restaurant offers fresh farm-to-table meals created from Fair Oaks Farms and other local farms. Their fresh American farm cuisine menu has something for everyone. You can find menu items such as a cheese board, baked spinach dip, ribeye burger, Indiana pork tenderloin sandwich, pizza, corn dogs, corn on the cob, and a variety of soups. The Farmhouse Restaurant allows dogs on their outdoor covered patio.
After eating, head over to the Dairycatessen for an ice cream treat. If you didn’t fill up at The Farmhouse Restaurant, the Dairycatessen offers grab-and-go sandwiches and salads and offers a large selection of local beer and wine.
Behind the Dairycatessen is Central Bark dog park, which is free for all travelers. Central Bark park is a one-acre fenced-in dog park. Inside you will find watering troughs, agility equipment, benches, potty waste bins, and shade areas.
Dexter and Levi enjoyed an afternoon of walking the Fair Oaks Farms grounds and checking out all the sights. I was in photo-op overtime! There were so many fun and quirky sculptures, I just couldn’t resist.
If you are looking for a fun road trip with your dog, I highly recommend visiting Fair Oaks Farms. You won’t be disappointed.
