Family Fun on the Farm
For the price of petting farm admission, you will enjoy a hands-on experience as you visit the animals and enjoy the petting zoo at your leisure.
Please note that for our guests’ safety and the safety of our animals, children MUST be accompanied by an adult at all times while at the farm and visiting the animal pens.
*All though we try our best, not all activities and/or animals are guaranteed on the day of your visit. We try our best to have Kittens in the Kitten Barn, Bunnies in the Bunny Box, Chicks in the Critter Barn, Hayride, etc. but again, not all activities are guaranteed.
**For the time of these activities visit the Daily Event Times page.
Milk a Cow
Did you know, on average, a cow drinks 30 gallons of water a day! That’s nearly a bathtub of water. A young female cow is called a heifer and must have a calf to produce milk. And sorry, but brown cows don’t give us chocolate milk. Learn this and other interesting “cow” facts during your visit to the petting zoo farm. Is milking a cow on your bucket list? Now’s your chance. Everyone has the opportunity to milk a cow during their farm visit.
Catch a Chicken
When our guests return to The Granary at the end of their farm visit we often ask them, “What was your favorite animal today at the farm?” Hands-down the boys will chime in,”catching a chicken!” Can you catch a chicken?!? Now’s your chance. We invite everyone to enter the chicken coop to catch a chicken. Can’t catch one? That’s okay. Our helpful farmers will catch one for you.
Kiss a Pig
While visiting our petting farm you’ll visit the Teenage Pig Pen and the Sow Barn. You’ll also learn fun pig facts. Did you know it takes 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days for a sow to have her piglets? As you enter the Teenage Pig Pen you’ll have the opportunity to pet a pig and feel their fine hair. And yes, kiss one if you wish.
Cuddle a Kitten
One of the most popular stops at the farm is The Kitten Barn. You’ll have a hard time pulling yourself away from the cutest, most playful kittens around. Spend a minute, or spend an hour. They are cute!
NOTE: When we have kittens in the Kitten Barn (not always guaranteed), the barn will be closed from 12:00 to 12:30 PM daily to allow the kittens time to potty, eat & nap. The barn closes for the day one hour after the last paid general admission.
Hand Feed Goats
You’ll have the opportunity to hand feed goats along with holding their kids and hold lambs too. While in the sheep pen be sure to run your fingers into the wool of the sheep to feel the lanolin found beneath. Did you know sheep are the only producers of lanolin? Also, Billy goats aren’t the only ones with beards and horns. Nannies (female goats) have them too. You’ll learn tons of animal facts while visiting the petting zoo farm.
Enjoy a Hayride
Farmer Pat LOVES taking our guests out on the hayride. The hay wagon pulled by the farm’s tractor takes you to the back of the farm. Keep your eyes open as you roll by planted fields of corn, alfalfa, pumpkins & soybeans. Can you identify the crops? Hang on…it’s a fun ride!
Pick a FREE Pumpkin in Fall
We have the best Pumpkin Patch in Wisconsin! Guests who visit during the fall season are invited to The Pumpkin Patch to pick their own FREE pumpkin! Farmer Pat plants a variety of pumpkins so whether you are looking for a big or small pumpkin, you’ll find just the right one. With acres of pumpkins to search through, you’ll discover each one looks better than the next. Kind of like being lost in a candy store!
