Sweetwater Valley Farm's NEW Red Cow Tour
now available Tuesday- Saturday

Experience the “Red Cow Tour” at Sweetwater Valley Farm:

Come to our farm and see the latest technology in the dairy industry as we show you how we are milking our cows with robots. Sweetwater Valley Farm is home to Tennessee’s first Lely XL robotic facility. This means we are using 8 robots to milk 500 of our Holstein cows. Take a guided tour of our robotic facility and while on the tour also learn more about our entire dairy operation and cheese make process. Before or after your tour, enjoy a grilled cheese or milkshake at our “Seed to Sandwich” café where we use cheese made from our milk right on the farm.
