Ok, so are you ready for this? There’s a farm in Hemishofen Switzerland that let’s you ride on cows. Yep. For real. We are talking about the beautiful swiss-brown-fluffy-ear-haired cows.

Trekking tours last half a day, so you have enough time to really bond with your cow. If 4h seems too much, there’s also a short-bonding version of 1.5h.

I can’t stop smiling and looking at my calendar, trying to find a date to schedule one of these in july when this family will be spending some time in good old Switzerland!

  2. I love cows and would love to bond with one. Of course I’d really like to go back to Switzerland soon!

  3. For all my readers, the first comment by Cat made me smile, she wrote in swiss german and said: “OH cool, My parents live just around the corner from this farm, and it only takes me 1/2 hour to get there. Funny enough I need to read a blog written by someone living in NYC to tell me what’s going on around the corner from my house. Thank you!”

  4. And when you come back a year later they are the lunch???
