We provide disposable gowns and gloves. They will view the milking parlor and we will explain how we produce the milk from beginning to end.

Downtown Tampa Tourist Photo Stroll
**BEST VALUE close to 3 hour tour with close to 70 pictures at different focal lengths, compared to other experiences** Join me on this thoughtfully designed walking tour that allows you to explore Downtown, Tampa in an enjoyable and educational way. While walking through parts of Downtown Tampa, we will see a variety of interesting spots that cannot be seen from a bike or car. Something unique about this experience is that we will be stopping at photography worthy locations and I will take a few social media influencer-style photos at each place and I will then edit and send after the tour. We will be starting in Channelside close to the Tampa Aquarium we will then walk through some historic landmarks, see some beautiful sights alongside the Hillsborough River, then take the Tampa TECO Streetcar (train) back to our place of origin. I believe Tampa is still the most unappreciated city in Florida. Come explore this beautiful city and make memories to share with family and friends.
EDGE District St Petersburg Food Tour
We will take you on a culinary adventure in one of St Petersburg's beautiful neighborhoods in the Down Town Area; known as the EDGE district.
