In this award-winning exhibit, children will begin to understand the agriculture connection from Farm to the Grocery Store as they become the "Little Hands on the Farm." It is a favorite destination for children ages 2-10.
What will kids do on the farm?
At the Start Barn, you begin your "visit" to the farm. Put on your apron, grab a basket, we have many products to "harvest".
Our first stop is the real grain silo. Scoop up some feed for the animals. Put it in your basket and head for the Chicken Coop.
Hog Barn - Sponsored by Utah Pork Producers
Learn a little bit more about the most intelligent of our domestic animals, pigs!
Dairy Barn - Sponsored by Dairy West
Take the feed that you scooped up in the grain silo and put it into the cow's feed trough. Then take a turn and milk the cow. On your way to the Farmers Market, grab a carton of milk and add it to your basket.
Pick an apple from the tree and put it in your basket. Head over to the Garden.
Here you can "plant" a seed on one side and "dig" up a vegetable on the other. Make sure to keep that veggie in your basket.
So much work to be done in the Tractor Shed! Start by fueling up your tractor. Then load up the front loader of your tractor with a straw bale. Drive it on over to the Sheep Barn.
Here you can groom the sheep. Don't forget to take a piece of wool for your basket. Head on over to the Dairy Barn, the cows need to be fed and milked.
Here you must gather an egg. Make sure to put it in your basket. Follow the path out to the Apple Orchard.
At the Farmers Market, you can drop off each item that you harvested on your visit to the farm. Place each item into separately marked bins. Then return your basket. The store clerk will buy your harvest items for Little Hands on the Farm "Money". Now head over to the Grocery Store and spend your earnings!
Here you can purchase a real agricultural product such as milk, an apple, granola bar, or other product.
