The "hands on" tour is the full experience and costs $15 per person. Your guided tour includes a trolley ride, a walking tour of the facilities, a chance to feed a calf, to milk a cow by hand, to meet and to pet the kangaroos and goats, to sample products, to eat ice cream, and even to make your own butter.

The most exciting part of a Hansen's Dairy farm tour, though, is meeting the farm's herd of kangaroos.
Meet Larry, Scooter, Rocket, Pogo, and the rest of the herd. Both farm tour options include time to spend with the roos, petting them and learning all about them.
Blake Hansen's love for kangaroos resulted in a picture-perfect habitat being built for his imported critters, and they receive the best of care.
You'll have the time of your life hanging out with these friendly, bouncy animals. Your tour guide will tell you all about what it takes to keep them healthy, happy, and safe.
Plan a day to relax and to enjoy the best farm tour in Iowa - but don't hesitate, because you'd hate to miss out on this spectacular opportunity. Tour season runs from April through October, with limited tour spots, and reservations are required.
