Always good experience here. You can also learn something new each time you go as there are many trained staff and volunteer to assist. They have a good variety of farm animals with hands on fun. You can buy eggs and chickens there too.

This is an amazing place to take kids for some fun while visiting Michigan. A wide variety of animals that allows you to interact with the "critters". My suggestion is take an extra pair of shoes (and extra set of clothes for the kids) as...More
