Green Meadows Farm

On a visit to this farm, groups can meet hundreds of friendly farm animals, rare and domestic. The Petting Farm features not only pigs, goats, turkeys, and geese, but also donkeys, kittens, and even alpacas and llamas. Feed, pet, and play with the animals while learning about them during a hands-on experience (including the opportunity to milk a cow). Go on a tractor-drawn hayride, have a picnic, and even visit during the fall for pumpkin picking. Group rates available.
