Farm Play Days

Our Play Days give you the opportunity to let your child enjoy a taste of farm life.  The main idea is unstructured play and exploration.  Bring a picnic lunch (if you wish) and enjoy pony rides, chicken wrangling, petting our other farm animals, playing in the dirt, a simple craft, and other outdoor/farm activities planned by our staff.   Keep tuned to our Facebook page for each Play Day details and to RSVP (not required but helpful)!

WHEN:  10:30-12:30 on the 2nd Friday and 4th Thursday of each month

COST:  $10/first child, $5/add’l sibling

TARGET AGE GROUP:  6 months-6 years (but we welcome any age)


1. Take a pony ride! We always have a couple of our favorite horses/ponies out to ride on!

2. Enjoy the extra activity based on the theme.

3. Make a little take-home craft--for the creative ones out there!

4. Play! Chickens, sandbox, dirt, wide open spaces--for just being a kid on the farm.

5. Expect to get dirty, especially if it has rained recently! Also, dress for the weather. You might consider a change of clothes and a plastic bag--just in case!

6. Bring a picnic lunch, if you'd like! Lay out a blanket and enjoy being outside.

7. Cost: $10 for the first child and $5/sibling. Cash or check preferred.
