UPDATE: This contest is now over. Congratulations to winner, Laurielyn, whose comment was selected by the random number generator. If you didn’t win, I hope you’ll consider attending this fun event anyway. I think the admission is very reasonable, and it’s all going to a good cause! You may also want to keep up with the farm on Facebook as they do have once a month open farm days in the warmer months.
Oh, and speaking of keeping up……I have our next giveaway is about to go live, and it’s the first of many this month. Woot!!
It’s the Holiday Festival at Nature Nurtures Farm, a very special place that, “…brings young people and animals together to build empathy, teach responsibility, and inspire hope.”
Periodically their farm is also open to the public, including December 7th for their super cute holiday festival. The event is a fundraiser for their ongoing programs where at risk kids are paired with animals to develop a wide array of positive behaviors.
At the festival your kiddos can meet and pet bunnies and chickens, groom the horses, make a card at the craft table, and much more.
There will also be photos with Santa available for purchase, plus hot beverages and bake sale goodies.
Regular admission is 10.00. Kiddos under 4 are free, and so is parking. You’ll want to bring cash for photos and bake sale items (there is also a raffle with some great prizes). All the proceeds go towards their innovative programs for at risk youth, so you’ll know your afternoon of holiday cheer is helping kids who need a hand year round. Pretty cool, right? Do dress to be outdoors and in a barn-think boots, coats, and umbrellas, and bring cash-they can’t take any other kind of payment!
The event is December 7th from 10AM-3PM-a perfect kick off to your family’s holiday season.
*I also have a family 4 pack of tickets to the festival to give away thanks to the generosity of the Nature Nurtures Farm team. Woot!*
