City life getting you down? Can't take the pressure of your daily grind? Need a place to escape to? Then head out to Indian Ladder Farms, a place where the sky is blue, the air is clean, and the animals are .... baby.
Indian Ladder Farms is opened for business (they opened on the 9th) and they are kicking it off with Baby Animal Days now until May 25th. (After the 25th the animals will no longer be babies, and will therefore no longer be cute.)
Your child can pet chicks, ducklings, turkey poults (bet you didn't know that's what a baby turkey was called... see, it's educational already), bunnies, piglets, lambs, goat kids, and calves (but you will not, I repeat, WILL NOT see one being born.. you'll need to go to Altamont for that).
Kids are $5 and adults and under 12 month year olds are free..(maybe that is directly proportionate to how much fun you will have... kids will have 5 dollars worth of fun...adults and infants will have no fun at all).
Bring your kids, bring a lunch, and bring PLENTY of hand sanitizer.
The farm is open everyday from 9am-5pm.
If you haven't been here, it's a great place to spend the morning. They also have a playground and sand pit that can keep the kids occupied for hours. Their farmer's market, gift shop and Yellow Rock Cafe are also great places to visit. Keep checking back for their pick-your-own schedule and even call the hotline - (866) 640-PICK to see what's in season.
