Children's Farm, Plamann Park

Acres of rural parkland offer solitude for the farm animals that reside there, as well as for nature lovers and hikers.The farm is the home of several young farm animals on loan from local farms in this area and are living in a farm like setting. The animals, cows, pigs, goats, sheep and rabbits can be viewed and petted by visitors from outside the fence. Feeding of the animals by visitors is not permitted because some of the young animals are on special diets. The animals are returned to their 'home' farms as they become bigger or at the end of the summer season.
