2012 Baby Animal Days at Plumb Farm
Enjoy spring at the farm with mothers and babies.
The Plumb Farm Learning Center celebrates spring with its annual Baby Animal Days Apr. 9-April 21
, 2012. During the two-week period, families are invited to the farm to see such animals as ponies, goats, lambs, cows, horses, pigs, rabbits, chicks and ducks. Pony rides will also be available on weekends. Pony rides will only be offered from 2p - 4p Saturday and Sunday. The animals are loaned by local farmers who provide care and feeding instructions.
The event is open daily for the two weeks. Hours Monday through Saturday are 9 a.m. to noon and 1-4 p.m. On Sunday the schedule is 11 a.m. -4 p.m. Admission is $2 ages two and older. Visitors may interact with the animals and sometimes feed them, depending on the farmers’ instructions. There are eggs and feathers to identify, a tractor to “drive,” stick animals to ride and even a sandbox for playtime. Volunteers are stationed at the animal pens and stalls to answer questions and ensure the safety of the visitors and animals.
There are restroom facilities and picnic tables on site. Allow at least a half-hour for the visit. Walk-in visitors are welcome, but groups of 10 or more are asked to reserve a time slot by calling the Greeley Museums’ office at (970) 350-9220
. Baby Animal Days began on a small scale in 1994 and has expanded to include nearly two dozen animals and 5000 visitors. The Plumb Farm is a Colorado Centennial Farm that has been in the same family for over a hundred years. It is located at 39th Ave. and 10th St., just across from the post office.
