Tourism Partner Spotlight: Stoner’s Dairy Farm
Stoner’s Hijos Hill Dairy Farm is located in Mercersburg at 7678 Oellig Road in Mercersburg.
Stoner’s Dairy Farm was initially established in 1942 by J. W. and Carrie Stoner. However, the farm did not become recognized as a corporation until 1970. This decision was made by six of their children as well as wife, Carrie Stoner. As a result of the many years that this farm has been open, the staff and family hold extensive knowledge and expertise regarding the products they produce. It also helps them in providing important and necessary education to the public!
Though Stoners Hijos Hill Dairy Farm does not bottle its own milk, the farm supplies much of its product to the Maryland/Virginia Dairy Coop Marketing. Aside from producing milk, the family and staff provide tour services for the public and school districts to enjoy. Tours cover how the 600 dairy cows are fed and cared for, birthed, the layout of the barn and other operations, a walk through the dairy parlor, and even a petting zoo! For kids and their families, Stoner’s also has a pumpkin patch and corn maze during the fall season.
As a result of social distancing and necessary COVID protections, Stoner’s is closed to the public with the exception of scheduled tours and appointments. For more information, contact Stoner’s Hijos Hill Dairy Farm via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call by phone at (717) 328-3617.
