Explore restored farm buildings, visit with farm animals and agricultural interpreters, stroll through 100+ acres of historic and modern rural landscapes or climb up on a vintage tractor in the fruit orchard. Exciting and educational activities await you in the farmyard! Hand-milk a Jersey cow, gather eggs from the chicken coop, groom a draft horse, feed the animals, bake biscuits in the woodstove and churn your own butter or help in the vegetable garden. The opportunities to learn and play are endless! Drop-in programs offered Wednesdays and Saturdays. Custom programs and birthday party packages available, too.
Tonight (Friday, 10/20) and tomorrow (Saturday, 10/21) are the last Moonlight Hayrides of the season! Perfect weather to enjoy a tractor-drawn wagon ride, hot chocolate or cider, and a bonfire. The cost is $8 for St. Charles Park District residents and $12 for non-residents. Visit the link below to register online:
The Hands-On Milking classes on July 19 & 22 are cancelled. Our mother cow Peanut is going to the Kane County Fair! We will resume normal class times next week. See you then!
