Where are we going today?

We love farms at Family Days Out! And if you do too, then you might just love Sass Family Farm!

There is always something for you to do when you visit this sweet family fun farm, and we'll start with the most important - the petting zoo!

Kids can get up close and interact with all the cute animals in the barn, from goats, horses, bunnies, sheep and even llamas!  Maybe they want to give them all a name when they say hello!

There is a fun sand box to play in, a super fun corn jump, a building block table where they can create and play, and swings for them to enjoy and get that fun feeling in their tummies while the parents go off and enjoy shopping for antiques, crafts and fresh produce!

In the fall, why not take a hay-rack ride through Haunted Hill (spooky!) or visit the haunted barn (boo!)  Don't worry, they are both suitable for small children...

And what would a farm be without produce!  A delicious array of colorful and tasty foods are available fresh and seasonal!  Sweet apples, deep colored beets, okra, zucchini, many to choose from! Of course there is a great range of home made jellies and baked goods to try as are really just doing your parents a favor by trying it first! 

Always a farm to make the most of a great occasion, they hold seasonal events, such as the annual Pumpkin Fest in October for Halloween, so make sure you keep an eye out for these across the opening period - you won't want to miss out! 

Don't forget to say hi to the llamas!
