[Oratche Dairy Farm]
Enjoy hands-on experiences in agriculture and dairy farming, and taste fresh dairy products
The Oratche Dairy Farm is a dairy theme park in Tanna, which has been home to a thriving dairy industry since the Meiji period. Oratche treasures the symbiotic relationship between people and cows. There are many different kinds of hands-on activities that utilize the foods produced on the premises, so you can enjoy all the fun that Tanna has to offer. On top of food-related workshops where visitors can make ice cream, bake animal-shaped bread, and more, there are also hands-on agriculture experiences where visitors can milk cows and harvest vegetables. In addition, you can also try your hand at crafting tapestries and keychains. (Each experience requires an additional fee; some require reservations.) The farm also has shops where you can purchase fresh dairy products, local beer crafted with care and attention, and more. There is also an animal feeding experience (additional fee required) that is especially popular with children.
Feel free to try the feeding experience (additional fee required) for goats and sheep
