From Our Visitors

Night at the Farm

"What a life-changing experience! Our expectations were exceeded and our night was a dream come true! The experience was very personable, intimate and a night we will never forget. A very big thank you to the host and the crew they had helping host! I can't wait to take my kids next time! it was wonderful being able to have adult time this way!" — Autumn A.

Day at the Farm

"Berning Acres was such a unique, exciting experience that you will not find anywhere else. We did the picnic and farm tour and the entire event was very well planned. The tour was interesting and educational, certainly not overwhelming. Lots of opportunities to interact with farm animals and operations. This did not disappoint!" – David K.

Farm Tour

"Such an awesome day. Kiddos enjoyed feeding calves, milking a cow, and petting goats. So many interesting facts about farming! Taylor was awesome and the Berning so welcoming! A+ experience… we would recommend." – Susan W.

Night at the Farm

"We had a group of six women that participated in the Night at the Farm! We enjoyed every minute of it and learned quite a bit. We loved the hands on experience with the farm animals, while also enjoying a few Spotted Cow beers! Before ending the tour, we also were able to grab a few gorgeous sunset pictures. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a date night or girls night out! — Bayleigh E.

Day at the Farm

"It was a perfect thing for our group of friends with kids to do together. We loved everything about it… the beautiful setting, the Berning kids were so helpful, even the picnic baskets were adorable. Fun for all ages!” Elizabeth O.

Farm Tour

"My family and I had the best time at Berning Acres! Our tour guide, Taylor, was so great! She was so kind and did not rush the tour at all. We had several kids in our group and she went at their pace. We so appreciate her patience and kindness! There were so many things we did, from feeding the calves to pony rides, and milking a cow. We had such a great experience and would highly recommend this, as it is a perfect family activity! – Erica W.
