Field Trip to Anderson’s Dairy

anderson's dairy 001

Anderson’s Dairy is located on the North end of Las Vegas. It is not a dairy in the sense that there are any cows there, but in the sense that they make the cottage cheese, ice cream, creamers, etc. and package it all there. There is a really great tour specifically for kids with cute (more like scary) animatronic barnyard animals that talk to the kids and tell them all about the “dairy.”

At the end there is a little movie about the history of Las Vegas and Anderson’s Dairy. (And judging by the hair and clothes was probably made in the early nineties, not that that matters.) At the end everyone gets a big bowl of cookies and cream ice cream.

We went with Kollen, her children, and her preschool kids that she teaches. The older kids, Aden, Luke, Morgan and Isabel, helped the preschool kids by holding their hands when we were walking in the parking lot etc. Everyone had a good time! It is a great kid friendly activity to do if you are in Las Vegas. You just need to call ahead to schedule a tour time. Here is the website for Anderson’s Dairy.

  1. My wife, eventhough she has been taking some blog abuse from me lately, coordinates field trips for up to 100 homeschool families in our community. I really don’t know how she puts it all together. They do everything from boat rides in the bay, bakeries, organic farming and even dairies.

    By far, they go on more productive field trips than the public schools can. She can set them up in small or large groups depending on the facility and the age group. She really gets so much satisfaction from putting them together.

  2. Are they really wearing shorts? We topped out at 35 degrees today, don’t be gettin’ jealous now! I’m also thinking that the “sorta dairy” was better for a field trip than the real deal…especially in the spring…ACK…the stinky is really starting to thaw out.
