Originally planned for April 23, the farm opening was delayed two days to allow for warmer overnight temperatures for the welfare of the baby animals. The farm, now a petting zoo, will be open daily, 10:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. through October 12. Admission is free, but a $1 minimum donation is recommended.
