If this sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon, it is! Less than an hour’s drive outside of our busy city is Blessington Farms located at:
Kids of all ages with a sense of fun and adventure will fall in love with this activity packed open-air wonderland! Blessington Farms lets you and your family pick cartons of fresh strawberries. Another popular attraction is the animal petting zoo. Children can hold, pet and make close friends with a variety of barnyard animals, including goats, lambs, miniature donkeys, and chickens. They might even get a visit from Carl and John-Boy, two camels who call this Texas farm their home.
There is more to do and see with a real barrel train, the jump pad, hay maze, and catfish pond. Don’t forget to join the “Rat Race” where you get to roll down a track inside a giant person sized tube. If you can picture running in a rolling hamster wheel, then you have an idea how fun this is!
Of all the reasons to visit, maybe the most important is that this farm provides a great opportunity for children who live in a city to learn about farm life and what goes into the food they eat. Kids and adults will have fun learning how food is grown. You will also go home with plenty of berries to make healthy and delicious pies, muffins, and other tasty treats!
When you are ready to freshen up your home – please remember Gallery Furniture – (feel free to bring some fresh berries to Mack – he loves them!)
