Spring Tours at The Children’s Farm

Available From March 14th Through June 8th, 2022

Moo-ve About The Farm – Spring Edition

This is our flagship farm tour program and is a perfect option for groups looking for a fun, educational, hands on farm experience that provides an overall introduction to our farm and resident animals.  This one-hour guided tour will cover basic farm and animal facts and provides the opportunity to interact and pet all of our animal species. The Spring is a very exciting season at the farm– chicks are hatching, goats are kidding, and our guests have the opportunity to experience it all. Our farm is filled with new life and lucky groups might visit with goat kids that are only days (or even hours!) old. Most tours will include horses, chickens, cows, goats, pigs, sheep, donkeys, ponies, rabbits and ducks and don’t forget to ask about adding a hayrack ride around the farm! This tour option can be customized for all ages and knowledge levels and is also perfect for groups with special needs!
