Due to extreme heat farm activities will be closed when the temperature is in excess of 103.
Everyday on the Farm:
Auntie Annabell’s Animal Garden:
Stroll through the hand painted concrete tunnel into the lush and beautiful Auntie Annabell’s Animal Garden. Brimming with beautiful flowers, abundant foliage, and flocks of friendly critters. Take time to enjoy the walk through aviary section that offers a wide array of exotic and familiar birds. Don’t miss the old time “water pump rubber ducky races” now located in the animal garden. Many thanks to Buck’s Landscape for redoing our cascading waterfall and duck pond. Watch your children play in the plastic ball pool while enjoying the shade in our central court with turtle doves cooing in the background. The corn pool was removed due to animal health issues from overfeeding. Children love animals and our friendly goats, miniature pig, sheep and miniature horse are very pettable. Our Critter Corals have petting windows where animals can be petted. Please don’t forget to use our darling “sink go round” and wash your hands with soap and water. Animal feed stations are located in 3 areas of the garden to delight children and critters alike. Feed pellets take quarters, so don’t forget to bring change!
Mount Murray Slide N Ride:
This Children’s Barnyard Toboggan Hill utilizes cardboard on synthetic grass to exhilarate youth of all ages. Bigger than most, this hill is about 40 feet by 20 feet, sloping from a 10 foot high center!
Little kids, teenagers and “some” big kids (sorry, weight limit is 220 lbs) all love to jump on our giant bounce pillow. A Kern County exclusive, this 60 foot by 80 foot inflated pillow is placed halfway into the ground. No sides to fall under or wires to get stuck on! This activity is under a roof that provides year round weather protection.
Barnyard Ball Toss:
This fairly new attraction is 60 feet long and has aim and shoot bulls-eyes for baseball, football and basketball. Many of our Family Farm Fanatics have enthusiastically stated “The ball toss arcade is my favorite game on the farm!”
Check out our butterfly house with Monarch butterflies. This attraction has information on the whole life-cycle of butterflies and people are allowed to walk among them. (only open during October)
On Weekends ONLY:
Enjoy our popular Hay Rides as it goes around the farm while one of our tour guides informs you on some fun facts about our crops and helps you pick our ripe fruit that we have available for u-pic.
Another favorite, the “Corn Cannons”, test your aim and shoot skills with hydrolic hand held guns. The target is a painted metal pumpkin that rattles and shakes when you hit your mark.
The kiddies love to ride in the tractor pulled, brightly painted barrels. The barrels look like our cuddly petting zoo animals. This is a favorite for parents too because the photo opportunity is priceless!
