The bag of food is full of the animals favorites, including treats like lettuce, an apple, or pretzel sticks. Starting at the back of the FarmPark, there is a miniature white pony, goats, pigs, sheep, and cows. On the other side of the FarmPark is the turkeys, ducks, and a beautiful peacock.

After the kids finished feeding the animals, we took some time to play in the shaded sand area and ride on the pony swings.

More information about the FarmPark, as well as hours can be found on the Paulus Farm Market website. The Market includes produce, a deli, bakery, and much more! We purchased a watermelon to take home, and some other goodies.

Pick Your Own Flowers

At certain times of the year, the market has fields of pick-your-own flowers and in the fall, pumpkins. Check their website for availability of pick your own and make sure to call to confirm that it’s open, as mother nature changes quickly. The cut flowers include a bucket to collect your flowers.
