National Farm Animals Day Social for 12at

National Farm Animals Day at Maymont Children's Farm

Today is National Farm Animals Day so we went to Maymont to check our the Maymont Children’s Farm!


They have lots of animals: cows, a few kinds of sheep, horses, lots of goats including three new babies all less than a month old, chickens, ducks, pigs, rabbits, and a donkey.


Kids and animal lovers will enjoy visiting because the entire farm is designed with hands-on animal interactions in mind.


You can purchase treats to feed the animals and they all get excited to meet you and get a treat!


The farm recently went through a renovation. It opened back up less than a month ago and it looks great.



If you’re planning a farm outing, you may want to make a day of it and pack a picnic lunch to enjoy as well. There are large open grassy areas surrounding the farm and big shady trees to sit under.


If you’re taking the kids, they’ll love running around while you relax and get some fresh air.



Enjoy your outing and send us pictures if you go:! You can also tag your pictures with #NBC12andME or submit your pics through the NBC12 News or NBC12 First Alert Weather App by going to the Send It To 12 section!
