The Kids’ Farm
While kids visit vegetable plots and animal contact areas, they will learn that most of the food we eat every day comes from farms, and that taking care of animals takes time, commitment and knowledge.
Kids can see our cows, donkeys, goats, alpacas, pigs, etc. and learn all about looking after farm animals. At the Caring Corral, they will have a chance to touch cows and donkeys, under staff members’ supervision.
● Any time you touch an animal, there is a risk of spreading germs (细菌). Visitors to the Kids’ Farm should wash their hands after touching the animals.
● The Caring Corral is open only when the staff are available; hours are limited.
● The Kids’ Farm uses pizza to teach kids how many kinds of food grow. Hands-on exhibits show how pizza ingredients go from the farm to the pizza. The Pizza Garden has slice-shaped plots of growing ingredients, including tomatoes, wheat and herbs.
● The 22-foot-wide Giant Pizza gives kids a place to play with oversized toppings and each other.
● During the busier season (beginning in June) , a free shuttle picks up visitors in need of a lift at the Kids’ Farm and drops them off at the Panda Plaza/the Bus Lot from 11 a. m. to 6 p.m.
