Located slightly out of Texas, in El Paso, Licon Dairy offers visitors the chance to learn about dairy products and enjoy a well-equipped petting zoo

A Great Place for Kids at Licon Dairy

June 11, 22014

When traveling to Texas, there are lots of things to see at the outskirts. One of these hidden gems is San Elizario in El Paso. In this little town, there is a working dairy that offers an awesome variety of great cheese, as well as a petting zoo and a fishing pond.

Licon Dairy gives charter bus visitors a chance to enjoy the best cheese products in Texas and family fun. Licon Dairy offers the best Azadero cheese made fresh daily, in original variety as well as special ones such as jalapeno and habanero flavors.

Petting Zoo

The animals at the petting zoo are well fed and tame, and just love being petted by little kids and adults alike. Coach bus visitors can find both exotic and domestic animals such as:

  • Buffalo
  • Sheep
  • Llamas
  • Deer
  • Goats
  • Ostrich
  • Donkeys
  • Peacocks
  • Longhorns
  • Parrots
  • Camel
  • Rabbits

Admission hours: Monday-Friday 7am-6pm, Saturday-Sunday 6am-7pm.

Licon Fishing Pond

Rental bus visitors can enjoy a spot of fishing if they were to stop by Licon Dairy. The pond is stocked every other weekend, and you don’t need a fishing license to fish here. The fee is $12 per fishing pole and the limit is 3 fishes per pole. Catch and release, overnight camping, charcoal grills and casting nets are not allowed at the pond.

Should you be interested to do something else at the pond other than fishing, you can instead choose to rent some pedal boats to take a ride around the pond for fun. There are also ducks and swans around and in the pond, so you and your kids would enjoy taking photos or them or maybe try to tempt them with some crumbs.

Shopping for Dairies

The main point of many visitors at the Licon Dairy is of course, for the dairy products. Not only does Licon Dairy sell their famous Azadero cheese, coach bus visitors can also buy eggs, milk and butter here. The cheeses here are rare and homemade, and delicious so be prepared to wait a long time to buy them.

Licon Dairy is located at 11951 Glorietta, San Elizario, 79849, and is open for visitors from Monday-Friday, 6am-5:30pm, and Saturday-Sunday from 6am-6pm.
