Petting Farm Open – Anola

May 8 and 9

Are you ready for some farm fun? At 10 Acre Woods, you can experience their Petting Farm, which takes place every weekend, where you can meet the animals, hear their stories, share in the miracles, feel the love, and heal with positive energy. Their animals are extremely friendly and maybe a little quirky; they LOVE meeting new friends and, of course, getting attention!

Make it a family outing with a picnic, relax and simply enjoy the sights, or take full advantage of the trails. Wander through the gardens to discover new herbs, traditional flowers, and watch the yummy veggies grow.

Contact 10 Acre Woods a day or more in advance to book your timeslot to visit the farm. To lower numbers for the petting farm on the weekend and accommodate everyone safely, they are booking one-hour timeslots. These can be scheduled any day of the week between 11:00 AM and 6:00 PM. Admission is $10.00 per person.
