In 1975, the Sam and Bev Minor family, complete with five children twelve and under, started milking cows, processing and bottling the HORMONE FREE milk, and running the country store that is the original part of today’s SpringHouse Country Store, Creamery and Eatery. Today, three generations of the Minor family continue to milk our herd of Hosteins and Jerseys on the farm. We grow corn, hay and pumpkins ~ and lots of Minor grandchildren ~ on 420 acres of land in North Strabane Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania. Over the years, the business has grown to include a buffet style restaurant and Sun Porch, a from-scratch bakery, a larger kitchen where our cooks create family-recipe meals , a smokehouse for old-fashioned hickory smoked hams, classy catering… ice cream concoctions galore, and of course farm fresh milk and famous rich chocolate milk…all in an old-time country setting. We have the Creamiest, BEST Chocolate Milk anywhere. Kids just can’t get enough of it! Come on out to the farm for a step back in time with old-fashioned eating, service and fun. Let us share a little of our farm with you!
Farm Tour Reservation Taking-Starts up again in 2018
Call to reserve your spot for a Spring Dairy Farm Tour at The SpringHouse! Spring Farm Tour Season for 2018 will be from Monday, April 9th to Friday, June 1nd. The fun begins with cow milking and calf feeding and ends with the bottling plant tour and an ice cream cone…and lots of educational excitement along the way. Teachers and organization leaders call almost every day this month to snag their date. We can accommodate groups from 25-200 (smaller groups are welcome to register also and pay the minimum). A unique” no-minimum day” is also scheduled for groups under 25 (like a family or a few neighbors) for which folks can register; that date is TBA and is called Small Group Farm Tour Day. Call 724-228-3339 and ask for Missy or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your farm tour today.
