Ardenwood has many activities for kids at the farm, one that my grandson and I partake in every week...no matter what... is the feeding of the animals! He really really enjoys this 'job' and sees it as a job! We cant miss a day of helping, because the animals wont get fed! (according to him!)
Ardenwood strictly asks that you do not feed the animals, except at the designated feeding times and with the designated food. This is the only way they can maintain the animals diet and health.

So at 3pm in the afternoon we are there waiting for the naturalist...

patiently waiting.... and for a two yr old that is really really hard to do!

But then the work begins, you have to get the alfalfa over the wood and into the bin...but not on the "beeps" (sheeps) head! You dont want all that alfalfa stuck in the fur on their heads!

This can be quite a task if you are vertically challenged! but once you get every last little bit of alfalfa over that wood piece....you get paid!!

Tractors! What kid doesn't like tractors? and lots of them! My grandson is mesmerized by these bright colored huge machines, whether they are sitting in the barn doing nothing, or out plowing fields he will stare at them indefinitely! Must be a guy thing!

and he absolutely LOVES the goats!

Our first visit to the farm, DGS went up to the goats and kissed one right smack on the lips, said "thank you" and went to the next goat and did the same....right down the line until he had kissed all four of them! Hilarious! Poor goats were stunned!
