What trip to the farm is complete without animals? In addition to many other activities, the farms in this list have animals out that kids can look at, and in some cases feed or pet.
Pet, feed, and learn about animals at Goat Daddy’s Farm. We would suggest setting aside at least 1 to 2 hours of your day in order to get the full Goat Daddy’s experience! There is so much to see and learn and even some opportunities for hands-on experiences!
Don’t forget to visit the farm for goat milk soap and lots more farm goodies.
The farm is open to the public every Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm.
This farm also offers seasonal events and homeschool days, as well as classes in homesteading.

A KAG reader favorite, Sky Top Orchard offers mountain views, ponds with ducks and geese, farm animals, play structures, and apple and fruit trees. Don’t miss the amazing apple cider donuts. Last year there were some concerns about Sky Top getting too crowded so maybe try to go during the week if you prefer smaller crowds.
2023 season-opening date: Sky Top WILL HAVE U-Pick in 2023.
Dogs on leash allowed but not in the fruit stand.
