Took my wife and kids to 1870 Farm for an "Open Farm Day". We saw a few scraggly sheep, a chicken house styled like a hillbilly shack, and buildings apparently used for other businesses. What we did not see was a working farm.More

I had a great time with my daughter and her friends during the Open Farm tour. We played with Alpacas, chickens and donkeys. Learned about the garden and walked the beautiful fields! An amazing day and a true gem.
