Animals are amazing creatures, and it's wonderful when you can give your kids a chance to have some pretty special animal encounters.
That's where Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary comes in!
This charming Massachusetts farm is a non-profit organization that rescues and care for a variety of animals from all different backgrounds. They may have been abused or neglected by previous owners, but now are in a happy home ready to welcome families just like yours!
Winslow Farm opened their doors to the public in 1997, and since then have been giving kids fun days out, where they can play and learn all about animals, including the importance of needing to look after them.
Not only does the farm give families a chance to meet and interact with the 200 animals on site, but they have a number of animal-oriented activities for all, including birthday parties (what a cool and unique party idea!), nature hikes and trails, and even pony rides!
The animals learn to trust people once more, and kids can have a unique experience - memorable and educational!
Make sure you keep an eye on the schedule across the year too! They often have fun events, such as Kids Day mid-summer where there are bounce houses, face painting and run races like the egg and spoon, and the grain bag race!
They also hold Barn Tours Saturday evenings, where you can visit the horses and goats in their homes, and even peek at the llamas and sheep as the night comes to a close!
If you're lucky you might be able to massage and walk a miniature donkey too!
Lots of animal fun at Winslow Farm Animal Sanctuary!
What aren't they doing! They are rescuing animals who are neglected and giving them a second chance at life. An amazing achievement!
