This is a great experience for people that arent used to farm life or living in the country. You can do a guided tour for $10pp that includes a hayride and milking a cow (if you want to) or you can pay $5pp and have a look around yourself. You get a map and an information guide. If you go... More

What does Blue Bell Ice Cream and Jersey Barnyard have in common? Belle the cow from the Blue Bell commercials. Not sure if she is still there, but there are plenty of other cows and calves; you can even feed the calves milk from a bottle. The Barnyard has special events during the year - hay rides in the fall,... More

Thank you for the enthusiastic review! We do still have a Belle on our farm. Over the years three different cows were used as Belle, with JimgleBelle being the spokes is for the longest period of time. Some commercials call for several of our cows so many have been stars!! More

Facility needs to be cleaned up. Lots of junk sitting around, such as a broken down lawn mower. Owners need to clean up the place!

TheJerseyBarnyard, Owner at Jersey Barnyard, responded to this review

Agreed! I think its been awhile since you've been here because that mower has been gone for a couple of months. We had a lot of things pulled out so we could haul it off. We were also having a chute repaired and moved some things away so it could get worked on. I'm guessing that was when you were... More

We drove 2 1/2 hours to La Grange. When we arrived at the barnyard, was so sure my two grandkids and hubby would look at me.....and ask me what was I thinking!! We were the only visitors. The place looks a little rundown, but then it is a working jersey milking farm. We took the tour so my city grandkids... More

We are so glad you visited our farm and said we were worth the drive! We are working on plans for new pens and its taking longer than I want it to. We recently built new bathrooms and a new A/C unit for the facility. Very important for this Texas heat! You are right, we are a working farm and... More

We had a great time at Jersey barnyard and will be back! The farm was clean (for a farm), organized, and the animals well taken care of. The kids and I loved feeding the ducks, rabbits, goats and mostly the baby calves! It was worth the extra $2/ bottle. We did the guided tour with a hayride and opportunity to... More

We may have been the only people there without children but I had as much fun as any kid! I love animals and I could have fed those goats from my hand all day long. (Believe me, they would have been up for it.) It was a joy to give a bottle of milk to a perfect angel-faced brown calf.... More

I was excited to check this place out! We opted for the self guided tour & they give you a map. You have the option to buy food for the different animal to feed & get a close encounter. I fed ducks, bunnies, Guinea birds, and of course the Jersey calves! Such a fun experience, with animals everywhere! This cute... More

We were passing through en route from New Orleans to New Braunfels, and stopped off at the Jersey Barnyard for a couple of hours. The farm was easy to find, just off a main road in La Grange. First we cooled off with ice cream as we looked around the gift shop. We were hoping to take the guided tour... More

The Barnyard is definitely worth a stop if you are going by, but I would not make the 2 hour trip for this again on its own. 1/2 of the tour is the farm animals which are located around the "store" (donkeys, shetland pony, chickens, pigs, ducks, turkeys, calves and goats). If you pay for the tour, you get food... More

I was super excited to be able to Visit this farm. I had heard that you could bottle feed jersey cows. I was a tad bit disappointed in the pen conditions of the jersey calf. I'm not sure if this the proper way of having them penned, but their enclosures were very small. I did get to bottle feed the... More

Thank you for visiting our farm! First, there should have been an explanation for the pens in either the guided tour or the information you were handed with the self-guided tour. This is the "nursery" part of our farm. Calves are raised in these pens while they are being bottle fed and they are only in them for two months.... More
