The Farm

The Farm is an ideal place to visit, enjoy a pony ride, hay ride, or just relax and watch the animals interact with each other. Programs have been offered since 1985. “Farmers” learn how to care for animals, including how to gather eggs, and even learn how to milk a cow. Some classes are just for the pony lovers! Whether you are just visiting or sign up for one of The Farm’s many classes, or special events, you are sure to want to come back for more!

Play The Farm Game

Mooooove over Angry Birds. Explore The Farm at Lee Martinez Park and learn about the animals that call it home with this interactive game created by Lightsource Creative Communications. Test your "farm knowledge" and discover your inner-farmer. This game is great for kids ages 2-7 at home or in the classroom.

Adopt an Animal

Anyone can adopt an animal at The Farm and become its "parent." As an adoptive parent, you are helping to provide for the food and care of your animal. Of course, your adopted animal stays at The Farm where it is cared for by Farm staff. Note: for all practical purposes, some of the animals are sold when they reach maturity. It's easy to adopt! Choose your favorite farm animal and adopt it for a year by making a tax-deductible donation. A farm "parent" receives an adoption certificate, his/her name listed at The Farm, and a poster as a "thank you," because we do appreciate your support. All adoptive parents will be invited to Santa on the Farm at The Farm in December.
