Family Scavenger Hunt!
Follow the signs around the farm to the different animal stations as you answer interesting and fun questions about barnyard animals! Adults beware – you may not know as much about animals as you think!
BABY GOAT YOGA!!!
Join Season Petrovich of Homestead Yoga Studio, LLC for some adorable fun doing yoga while baby goats prance around! Yoga sessions are free and will be held throughout the day in between tour times. There will be some extra mats, but feel free to bring your own and hop in at any time!
Spring Water Collection:
There is a natural spring located on the farm for anyone who would like to gather some to take home with them. It is encouraged that you bring your own water collecting vessel, but glass jugs will be provided at a small fee.
