Discover our special barnyard animals!

Our Angora rabbit Violet, Nubian goats Maeve, Morgana, and Mordred, dairy cows Gray, Jasmine and their calves Gigi and Joanie, and our friendly flock of heritage chickens will take center stage as we learn about what makes them so unique.

Befriend the Barnyard is a hands-on barnyard learning experience that allows you and your family to approach our barnyard buddies under the guidance of a professional farm-based educator.
