The petting farm is stocked with goats, chicken, ponies and donky. The goats are very friendly and will enjoy some fresh picked grass. The petting farm is available all day during daylight hours. There is a children’s swing set and play area beside the petting farm. Kids can also collect colorful eggs from our talkative hens.
Our donkey, Little Jack, is a favorite of children and parents alike, as he enjoys lots of attention (petting, brushing, feeding him a carrot, etc.). When he begins to bray, everyone knows Little Jack isn’t getting any attention! Kids can play on either of the seesaws while watching the donkey play on the pasture or the chickens in their coop.
We have outdoor fitness area and over a mile of hiking trails, gentle to moderate, on our property, primarily through our heavily wooded areas. There are no charges for any of the farm activities, its just part of the value for staying at Pioneer Cabins and Guest Farm. Our goal is for our guests to enjoy healthy and active country life. The farm activities are only available to the guests staying at Pioneer Cabins.
We have organic gardens around drive way, office and next to the horse pasture. We grow local plants, fruit trees, wild flowers and cut flowers, vegetables, and herbs. We harvest the herbs, vegetables and fruits when they are fully ripe, and we put them in the customer center so you are more than welcome to take them for your gourmet meals. You can also pick fruits and vegetables, fresh flowers or collect seeds in the garden as well.
