The Milwaukee County Zoo invites families to come to the Family Farm Weekend, sponsored by Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, September 6 and 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Most of the day’s activities will be in the Zoo’s Northwestern Mutual Family Farm, the last working farm in the city of Milwaukee, complete with dairy cows and a milking parlor. Get the full farm experience by taking part in milking demonstrations, milk sampling, games, pedal tractor-pull contest, and even a milk chugging contest. Throughout the grounds look for some great infographics and take your picture at the photo booth provided by WMMB. Alice in Dairyland, the state’s agriculture ambassador will also visit on Sunday from 9:30 to 11:30.
