Local Love: Steckle Heritage Farm
We had been meaning to check out Steckle Heritage Farm for awhile now so after daycare one day last month we finally went! It's a real operating farm but on Tuesdays after school they open up the farm for people to come and explore. What a great idea! It's only $5 per family and we spent just under 2 hours there exploring and getting a tour from one of the owners. We got to pet the old turkey who roams the property, watch some baby pigs dig in the mud, see a bin of baby chickens eating and wander around to check out all the other animals they had. Iris was in heaven. Total heaven! I think her favourite part was by far the goats. Here are a few photos if you wanna take a look...
We had such a great time! It was pretty quiet on the day we went so we spent a lot of time chatting with the owner and talking to him about chickens (haha we're obsessed!) and all the things they do there. The place even has bathrooms and an indoor play area for kids in one of the barns so you could really spend the whole evening there if you wanted to. Next time we'll make use of the picnic area and pack our dinner to eat there.
One of the cool things about having kids is finding all these awesome family friendly places I never knew existed right in town. KW is so great :)
