Last Saturday we spent the day at Gullion Farms for “Down on the Farm” 2011. Gullion Farms is located in Somerville, Alabama and opens it’s “doors” to the public each year on Saturdays during the month of October.
There are enough activities, food, and fun to keep the kids entertained all day long…if you can convince them to get out of the corn jump. You think a ball pit is fun? Just wait. Heck, I didn’t want to get out. Thank goodness I had a toddler with me as an excuse to jump in there with the kids.
What is a farm without animals? Sweet T enjoyed
feeding watching Mommy feed the “baa-baas” (any large mammal is a “baa-baa” right now) which included sheep, goats, a donkey, and a 3 week-old calf. Ducks, rabbits, and chickens also abound.
Activities available at Gullion Farms include:
Milking A Cow
*Horse & Cart Ride
Scare Crow Station
Sling Shot Station
*Snacks and Sweet Shop
Horse Drawn Wagon Ride
Playground with Tire Swings
*Mini Tractor Pulled Wagon Ride
* Not included in admission price
Down on the Farm is open to the public every Saturday in October from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Admission is $10.00 per person and children under school age are free. Gullion Farms also coordinates with local schools to offer field trips during the week and birthday parties are available throughout the year. We can’t wait to go back next year when Sweet T will be ready to appreciate a few more of the activities.
