• We Asked… “What’s Your Favorite Thing About The Spring Farm Tour?”

    By Jenise Henrikson, April 12, 2016

    With spring in full swing, we thought it would be fun to feature highlights of our upcoming, popular Spring Farm Tour, happening April 16. Held every year, this special fundraising event offers a unique chance to learn what life was like when agriculture, not tech, was king!

    We asked our farm staff and volunteers what they thought was the best thing about this event…

    1) The Goats!

    These energetic, “funniest and friendliest” little guys are one of the most popular attractions at the farm, and it’s easy to see why. The goat babies (‘kids’) are the cutest when they try to jump on their new climbing playset.

    “I love to watch the baby goats leap straight up in the air and chase each other.” They love people, and will try to nibble your shirt if you don’t keep an eye on them!

    2) The Pigs!

    Be sure to “see the new pig pen” and how happy our pigs are in their new home. It’s equally striking “seeing the children’s wonder at seeing the size of the pigs.”

    3) Sharing the Farm Life!

    One docent felt that “the tours are the best way to share my love of the farm.” Of course, “being able to experience the farm from the other side of the corral fence…from the farmer’s perspective” is golden!

    Buying “a Friends of Deer Hollow Farm tee shirt – one for every member of your family” is a great way to share farm life post-tour.

    4) Watching the Children Interact with the Animals!

    There’s no shortage of interactions, whether “petting the animals (softness of rabbits and feathers of chickens)” or going “nose to nose with a rabbit.” Children love to “touch a warm, freshly laid chicken egg” and go “eyeball to eyeball with the chickens & geese.”
