Where are we going today?

We LOVE a farm at Family Days Out, but we also love when we find a place that is SO much more than a farm - and that's exactly what the White Post Animal Farm is all about!

White Post Animal Farm offers year round fun for families who love to have fun, and love animals - and love a great family day out! Does that sound like you?

First, let's start with the obvious - the animals! Did you know that this farm has been giving families great animal experiences since 1886 - that's a LOT of memories that have been created! Here, kids can see a host of super cute animals, form the zebra, to goats, kangaroos and even some exotic species!

These include Ring-Tailed Lemurs from the forests of Southern Madagascar, Ostriches from Africa, Grevy Zebras from Kenya, Nilgai antelopes from India, Aoudads from Northern Africa and Exotic Cattle, and of course those everyday favorites goats, lambs, pigs, deer and alpacas.

It's the perfect place for kids to have interactions with animals from all over the world, as well as learn all about them - from their habits, to their habitats, and everything in between!

White Post Animal Farm also hosts fun Reptile Edventure Shows, where kids are given a fresh look at these scaly creatures. The knowledgeable staff will tell you all about snakes, and turtles, crocodiles, arachnids and even crocodilians!

But we said that this fun day out is SO much more than a far - and that it is! Kids can't get enough of bouncers, so it makes sense the farm will have a GIANT slide as well as other huge bouncers, that kids can ride again and again!

And of course, don't miss the famous Fall Festival where there is SO much to enjoy, from pumpkin patches, bouncers, shows, horses, and playgrounds!

There is almost TOO much farm fun to be had - so make lots of room for it!

    Although CWF is not the fanciest facility, all the horses are treated so well and are very happy. They don't charge extra for little things and go the extra mile for me and my horse when needed. In the winter they put out round bales, on hot summer days they wait to turn out when it is more comfortable, they organized the farrier, and routine vet care.
