A 60-acre agricultural enterprise, Children's Farm features almost every kind of farm animal. This is a working farm; its fields provide hay for the animals and a u-pick-it pumpkin patch for October visitors. Farm guests are welcome to get in the pens with cows, sheep, goats and pigs for an up-close look and touch. (Here's a chance to feel what leather feels like when it's still on the hoof.) Smaller residents include ducks, rabbits, chickens and geese. Downy-soft baby ducks waddle across their own pen and scamper into their own swimming pool. Seventeen horses whinny from the farm's largest barn. When weather and work schedules permit, farm staff give complimentary hayrides. A pavilion offers a shady picnic spot; bring your own lunch, but don't feed the animals. It's against farm rules.
