Farm Animal Frolic
Come enjoy baby farm animals, children’s show, games, hands-on activities, refreshments & more.
Frolic offers two weekends of fun for the entire family as Quiet Valley comes alive with baby farm animals. This is a unique opportunity for children and the young-at-heart to see and touch a variety of baby farm animals. Watch baby chicks hatching from their eggs and feel the soft fur of the baby bunnies. Don’t miss seeing the new lambs with their woolly fleece and the frisky baby goats. The adorable baby piglets with their funny little noses charm everyone. Get to know the workhorses, Gunther and Wilhelm. Meet Janie, the mule.
Children always love the hay jump in the barn, and they can play some of the traditional games enjoyed by past generations. There is a children’s show twice a day. The outdoor brick bake oven is in operation both weekends. There is plenty of hearty homemade food and sweet treats for all!
