The UConn barns are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, (including weekends and holidays), at the University of Connecticut's Storrs campus, where visitors can watch dairy cows being milked and see baby animals. And it's never too cold for ice cream: After a self-guided tour, stop by the UConn Dairy Bar to watch ice cream being made and purchase a cone, milkshake, float or other treat.
