Open Barnyard at Weir River Farm

Hi, guys!

How is your Labor Day weekend going so far? I’m just popping in with a quick post about our recent trip to Weir River Farm for their Open Barnyard Hours.

From now through October, the farm opens their barnyard every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month, so visitors can explore and meet their animals. Pro tip: If you have a toddler/small child, you might want to bring a stroller along. There wasn’t a ton of walking, but if you have a little one, who needs to be carried, you might want some wheels for getting around the farm.

The farm had all sorts animals for kids to see. Quinn especially loved the goats.

Ok, he loved ALL of the animals. He actually ran over to the chickens! Haha!

Goats, chickens, bunnies, and horses lived in the main barnyard while pigs and cows were in separate pastures, which were a short walk away.

Volunteers took some of the animals out of their pens, so the kids could see them up close and personal. Quinn had the chance to pet a chicken, bunny, and a goat. He absolutely loved it and was smiling from ear-to-ear.

And, before we left, we made one more stop to pet Quinn’s goat buddy.

We had such a nice time at Weir River Farm. I can’t wait to go again soon. I’m sure it just gets more and more fun as Quinn gets older and more interested in animals.


  1. Fun! My girls and I have been visiting the same pumpkin farm every fall since my oldest was 9 months old. They have goats, chickens, rabbits, donkeys, calves, sheep, llamas, and I’m sure I’m forgetting some. They are in high school now and still enjoy going!
