About Barnyard Story Hour at Appleton Farms

Barnyard stories really come alive when you get to see the main characters in real life! Bring the kids down to Appleton Farms for our farm-fresh version of story time. Explore the farmstead, visit our learning garden, see our cows, goats, and rabbits, and find a spot to play under a shady tree in our stone paddock. Gather around for a farm story with one of our farmers!

The program begins at 10:30am with coloring and a story or two. We will then head to the barn to interact with the animals. This event is appropriate for infants to children age 6. Please dress appropriately for the weather, as the animals we visit live outside rain or shine. Tickets are required for both adults and children. We will meet at the white farmhouse. See directions below.
