Awajishima Farm(Bokujyo)



Awajishima Farm is blessed with a natural environment and offers a wide variety of farm experiences that can be enjoyed by both children and the elderly, such as milking, making butter, and feeding milk to calves. In addition to barbecue using high-quality Awaji Island beef, visitors can also taste dairy products made from Awaji Island milk.

Awajishima Farm Facilities

Awajishima Farm Map

The facilities at Awajishima Farm are as follows. The facilities are relatively small, so feel free to walk around the facilities.

Milk-squeezing experience area

Awajishima Farm's milking experience

Awajishima Farm is known for its milking. Local elementary school students always visit Awajishima Farm for this hands-on experience. It is one of the tourist attractions that you should experience when you visit Awaji Island.

Pickland Pavilion

Awajishima Farm's Pickland Pavilion

Pickland Pavilion is a covered facility where visitors can barbecue Awaji beef and experience cheese and butter making.

The main facilities at Awajishima Farm have roofs, making it a sightseeing spot that can be enjoyed even on rainy days. Since there are few sightseeing spots on Awaji Island for rainy weather, it is recommended to visit as an alternative plan for rainy days.

Milking place

Awajishima Farm Milk Drinking Experience Place

Take a bottle of milk and the calf will happily approach you. Try giving milk to the calf as if you were a mother. It is really cute to see the calf drinking hard.

On this day, there was a pony for some reason on the milking experience.

Fee: 500 yen / bottle
