I made the mistake of telling dd we could go visit a farm in the spring without making sure that there were farms around to visit in Indiana. And she's regularly bringing up how she's going to see a sheep and horse and chickens and a cat.

 

Lots of farms in Indiana, but not many that have a wide variety of animals like that with chances to pet the nicer animals.

 

Anyway, we'll be going to the zoo in Lafayette that has a barn of various farm animals, but I'd like to get her a more "farmy" experience.

Ummm... Traders Point Creamery (NW side Indy) has cows, chickens, and cats. And does tours!

Schacht Family Farm, at the south end of B'ton, usually does a farm tour - maybe even 2? (fall and spring?)
