Absolutely loved this place for the kids. They have a petting zoo which you could feed them as well. They also have a really cute store that sells fresh fruit and flowers. I highly recommend bringing your children here to have some fun.

Very family friendly. Kids can feed the goats, see other animals, go on tractor ride etc. selection of foods and produce is good but highly priced. This place is packed on weekends. Go during the week if possible.
