    5 Ways to Enjoy Boulder Farms with Kids

    Homegrown fun and simple country pleasures (think strawberry-stained chins and hay stuck in your hair) will have every member of your family grinning from ear-to-ear.

    1. Big. Red. Barn.

    At Longmont’s Agricultural Heritage Center, tour a historical farm, pretend to be a draft horse to see how much weight you can pull, and watch as little ones push buttons inside a tractor cab and play at the fruit stand.

    2. Pumpkins for Lil’ Punkins 

    During harvest time, Rock Creek Farm goes all out, with acres of pumpkin patches, jumpy castles, slides, farm animals, a hay bale maze and a corn maze – all with a sweeping vista of the Rocky Mountains.

    3. Bahhhh

    Meet baby goats and learn how the farmers milk the mama goats at Mountain Flower Goat Dairy. They even host a baby goat “shower,” a celebration with crafts, face painting and baby goat cuddlin’ (oh the cuteness!), each spring.

    4. The Family That Farms Together 

    Volunteer in the vegetable fields or herb garden at Pachamama Farm for some quality bonding time. You’ll also soak up lots of knowledge and inspiring views.

    5. Seeds of Peace 

    The Children’s Peace Garden is a great place to wander, snap some photos under the charming rainbow entryway with the gorgeous Flatirons as backdrop, and teach little minds about some of Boulder’s most cherished ethos: locally grown health foods, kindness, community and peace.
