Kelsey Creek Farm

June 21, 2012

copyright 2012 Bona Fide BitesOur latest exploration took us to an unexpected place. I grew up in Ohio, so I am used to seeing farms everywhere. A farm in the middle of the city, however, surprised me.

Kelsey Creek Farm, located in Kelsey Creek Park, is a wonderful place to take young children in the Seattle area. And, it’s FREE! Complete with cows, goats, pigs, chickens, bunnies, and horses, visitors are free to wander about independently. They offer all types of classes (at a cost) for children, including horsemanship training.

Since I have a 2-year-old, the choices of classes are quite limited, though they do offer a “Little Farmers” class that is a parent/child class. I plan on checking that out.

During our visit, I had an opportunity to capture some images of the animals and thought I’d share them here.

I’m not going to lie, the cows smell. That should come as no surprise, they are cows after all.

The farm is home to four little piglets, born in January 2012. They were all asleep while we were there.

The horses seemed friendly. As I said, Kelsey Creek Farm offers horsemanship courses, starting at age 4.

The surrounding park is a wonderland for children to explore the good-ol’ outdoors. They loved climbing on the old trees.

This is one bird I am glad was behind bars. I don’t like the look I was getting from this one.

¬†Kelsey Creek Farm offers the “Little Farmers” class (for ages 2-3) next month. It advertises that children will actively participate in animal care and feeding, barn chores, cooking, gardening, and arts and crafts. I’m on a mission to find out more information on it. I think this may be a good one to explore.
