Hay! We dropped by the Gilchrist Farm to pet some cute little piglets, milk the momma goat and picked a pumpkin to celebrate the fall. The family farmhouse opened it’s doors to the community this year and it was swarmed with locals stopping by for their family traditions.

Talk about a rad place to hang out with a bunch of 5 year old kids! These guys seriously loved the farm. We were able to let them run their energy out in the cool hay maze. It’s 4ft tall and the hay stacks were awesome for some cool pumpkin patch photos. Kids get lost pretty damn easily, so this maze was just tall enough so the kids wouldn’t see above it but the parents could clearly locate them if they weren’t finding their way out.

They didn’t have scary decorations, mostly cute and friendly. This was their “scariest” Halloween creeper. My sons kindergarten class was so excited to see the animals on the farm. It was the best attraction of the field trip.

We only stayed for two hours, which was more than enough time for the average classroom size of 24 students. They were crawling around the farm like mini army ants trying to find the next cool adventure.

It was pretty bad ass that the staff were naturally friendly, especially after answering all of those random questions (lets face it, some kids can be annoying). They brought some chicken feed and let the class toss some food for the hens and roosters.

Overall, the trip to Gilchrist Farm was an educational field trip and the kids loved it. Everyone brought home a cute pumpkin to decorate with their family. I would recommend that you visit this cute little farm and support your local small business.
