Who knows some great farms, full of charm and interest for small children? I would love to know which are worth visiting. Produce is great, but just to be on a little farm for an afternoon, with some animals, barns, hay, those things....would be great.
We go to the Old Maryland Farm in the Watkins Regional Park. It has some bunnies, chickens, geeses/ducks, turkeys, peacocks, cows, horses and a pig. If you go on the weekend they have a train and a merry-go-round, but that may be closed for the season. It was small, cute. There is also a farm near-by that does produce and pumpkin stuff. It is called Queen Anne's Farm, I think. I don't think it is organic, but we just went there for the pumpkins.
We have gone to the Oxon Hill farm as well, but the Old Maryland farm has a playground too. And you can feed the animals corn at the Old Maryland Farm. You can find the directions to the farms on the PG Count parks and recreation website.
I know there is a list in the library of PYO places for produce, but I gave my copy away.
It's not organic but it's soo much fun! They try to balance pesticide use & having a good crop
We're members. There's PYO, a hayride, lots of stuff to checkout and the farmers are sooo friendly and kind.
