A small, grass-fed dairy farm open to the public. A small, self service farm store sells raw milk and cheese, a few other local products, and the New York Times. You may or may not come across the farmers, but the place is welcoming and you can poke around to visit the cows, calves and pigs. If your timing is good, you might get to see the cows being milked - -a window in the farm store looks into the milking parlor.
