Little Farm Hands provides the opportunity for families with young children to learn the importance of lending a hand and helping others while gaining confidence around animals. Take part in daily farm chores such as sweeping the barn, cleaning out stalls, mucking fields, checking and refilling water containers and troughs, back up feeders, barn care, and many other possibilities for farm fun. With parent supervision, little ones will have a blast getting up close and personal with their favorite farm animals while learning how to care for these gentle creatures.

Visiting a Petting Zoo is better than ever, thanks to Allaire Community Farm. Visiting with goats, donkeys, chickens, cows, and sheep in a safe, enclosed area is a great way for little ones to become comfortable with farm animals. For children who love animals but are not quite ready to saddle up on a horse, this low-pressure atmosphere on the scenic grounds of Allaire offers easy access to the farm’s animal friends.

Pony Parties at Allaire Community Farm are not your ordinary pony-riding experience. Whether you are looking for a fun group play date or a different type of birthday party for your little one, these parties allow children to get hands-on with hay ride adventures, animal feeding, petting zoo access, pet grooming, egg gathering in the hen houses, and of course – pony rides! Having fun while learning about the farm’s many different daily chores and responsibilities is what this group farm program is all about.

Therapeutic Carriage Rides are offered to children who experience cognitive, physical, social, and emotional conditions. By having the opportunity to ride with and care for the farm’s team of gentle horses, kids can work on enhancing their balance, coordination, and communication skills, in addition to building self-esteem in this incredibly welcoming outdoor environment with experienced staff.
