Chaneys Dairy Barn Bowling Green
Where are we going today?
There is something really fun about taking the family to enjoy good old fashioned farm fun, especially over the fall season - and Chaney's Dairy Barn can offer just that.
It also has ICE CREAM! Are you sold yet?
This fun Kentucky farm experience is so much more than just a working farm. In fact, it's been in the Chaney family since 1888, which is a lot of farming that has been done by those generations - and now you can be a part of it!
How about finding out how the farm works? Well, they offer self-guided farm tours where kids can learn the whole process, and see parts of the farm they might not normally see - pretty cool!
Then, during fall, it's when the Chaney's Dairy Barn really comes to life! It's here that kids can challenge themselves to that 5 acre corn maze, and try and get out of the other side - we know you can do it!
For those kids with more energy to use up, the jumping pillow is always fun to see the farm from a whole new angle!
The Barnyard Playground is free and always available which means kids can always have that playground fun across the season!. The Barnyard Playground features 2 monster slides, swings and an awesome sand play area. It is located directly behind the Dairy Barn and is lots of fun!
Sometimes you might just want to sit and relax and their back porch is just perfect for that! It's a great spot to see a magnificent sunset or just eat a scoop of ice cream! If you prefer to stay indoors, you can find many Kentucky made food and craft products in the gift shop as well as Chaney's Dairy Barn souvenir items.

We had a great experience at Chaney's today. The ice cream was fantastic. Our children can't stop talking about how "generous" the scoops were.
Thanks for a refreshing stop on a hot summer day!

Disappointed. We have two girls (2 and 4) and read online reviews about what a great place this is. I'm sure it is a fun place when you actually get to take the tour, but that is not offered to people just stopping in. The farm is not as close as I imagined, and walking over to it (several hundred feet) on a hot day with two littles was not going to happen. The food was ok. My grilled cheese sandwich was burnt.

The best chicken salad in Bowling Green and the WOW NOW brownie cow ice cream is the ultimate example of how ice cream should be made.

I love going to Chaney's for their soup and sandwich combo. They have the best potato soup around. Not to mention, you get to follow it up with some of that homemade ice cream. I love all of their unique flavors including pumpkin!
