Celebrate Spring on the Farm at Spring Farm Day!

This annual opportunity, hosted 10 am to 3 pm on May 12, 2018, is packed with family fun including live cow and goat milking, sheep shearing, and antique farm equipment demonstrations. Plus, there are plenty of hands-on opportunities too, like games, arts and crafts, a corn bin (like a sandbox, but with kernels!), and more!

While there, the farm animals, including the Spring babies, are a can’t-miss! Plus, enjoy a visit to the playground, nibble on fair food, and even enjoy a carousel and wagon ride ($3 each).

Admission is available online or on-site the day of the event (children under 2 are free). Plan ahead and save $1 by pre-purchasing here (recommended); parking is free.
