One of our daughter’s favorite places to visit is Promise Land Family Fun Farm. We have already visited the petting farm three times since they opened for the 2018 season. The petting farm is open daily, from Thurs to Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm. Admission is $7 (under 24 months is FREE).
You can purchase a season membership for four for $85.00. The farm accepts both debit and cash payments. Lucky for us, it is a 10 min drive from our house. Each visit, we spend about an hour, feeding the animals, walking along the outside animal enclosures, and playing in the three parks. My daughter loves the goats and likes to pretend to ride the train and bus play structure.
Along with miniature horses, goats, chickens and ducks, some of the unique animals at the farm include alpacas, llamas, a silkie, peacocks and a Patagonian Cavy. The farm sells 3 different sizes of animal feed portions, which allows you to feed the animals. There are informative signs on the outside of each pen that includes a picture and some facts about each animal.
What makes Promise Land stand out is the subtle touches Cheryl and Don have put into the farm. With three play grounds there are lots of non-animal activities for kids to do on site too. The grounds of the farm are fully enclosed with an open concept, which gives my daughter the ability to move freely between the animals and playgrounds. There are also lots of seating areas where we can sit and watch her play.
Nan’s Place, which is located by the roadside, has some picnic tables. This is a perfect spot for eating lunch or grabbing a drink and snack.
Our family definitely recommends visiting Promise Land Farm. You might just make a new-found friend.
