Kelsay Farms & Kelsay Farm Tours, LLC
Located just 16 miles from downtown Indianapolis, Kelsay Farms is easily accessible for city dwellers wanting to escape to farm life.
Established in 1847, Kelsay Farms is a sixth generation dairy and crop farm with three of those generations currently working on the land.
The Kelsays turned their attention solely from farming to an agritourism business in 2007. With the launch of Kelsay Farm Tours LLC, the Kelsay family has dedicated their time to educating the public about agriculture. They lead student and scout groups on an in-depth look at the milking parlor, and the groups also take a class where they learn about dairy nutrition.
Spring and summer tours are limited to student groups, but come October, Kelsay Farms is open to the public on weekends for guided farm tours departing every hour. They offer a 5-acre corn maze, hayrides, a pumpkin patch, a straw bale climbing mountain and other family-friendly activities.
When visitors get hungry, there’s a snack bar with chocolate milkshakes and cheeseburgers.
They’re open Friday, 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday noon to 10 p.m., and Sunday noon to 6 p.m.
