Mixing loose chickens, tire swings, ponies and giant tree houses makes for a heckueva fun day for a kid. You just may enjoy playing on the farm, too.
All it takes is a trip to Sunflower Farm in Longmont for its Kid’s Farmfest every Saturday and Sunday throughout the summer.
Farmfest allows families to step out of suburbia and get just a small taste of farm life because, lets face it, our kids could likely learn a thing or two from a day at the farm. It’ll at least get them away from the Wii for a few hours.
During the self-guided farm tour, kids get to help collect eggs, feed baby animals and climb on the tractors and learn a whole lot about agriculture.
It’s a great way to transition from school life to summertime bliss.
Kid’s Farmfest, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at The Sunflower Farm, 11150 Prospect Road, Longmont. Admission is $8 for adults and teens, and free for kids 12 and under. Call 303-774-8001 for info.
