The Farm Description
Cuddly kittens, chicks … and cows? The Farm bills itself as a "living museum of rural America," and it's certainly that: A working farm where children can see and participate in the care of animals and crops and learn about the history of farming in the rural United States. Historic buildings and artifacts, gardens and prairies, and a variety of animals provide a thorough farm education, but kids are too busy feeding baby sheep from bottles, wandering the picturesque grounds, throwing corn to livestock, and petting fuzzy chicks to notice they're learning.
Toddlers & Pre-K: If you buy a small child milk to feed the animals, keep him close as you enter the farm yard. Eager baby animals will run up to the shortest visitors and help themselves to the milk, so it's easy for a small child to feel overwhelmed or run out of milk before he knows what's happened!
School-Age Kids: Kids this age think it's absolutely hilarious to feed cows to the huge, eager cows at the rear of the big red barn. The cows open their mouths and stick their tongues wayyy out in anticipation of the treat — a great photo op.
- Pack a lunch. There are picnic tables on The Farm's grounds, making it a great place to enjoy a picnic lunch. There are cold drinks and ice cream for sale in the milk house.
