Have a Picnic

Aren’t picnics just the best? It’s the perfect way to create fun memories, enjoy the outdoors, and, most importantly, indulge in some tasty food. With the snow quickly melting away and the warmer weather sticking (knock on wood), now is a great time to have a family picnic.

There are many fantastic places to set up your picnic blanket, but here are a few ideas to get you started.

Petting Farm Open

Date: Saturdays and Sundays May to September

Location: 10 Acre Woods, Anola

Have some farm fun at 10 Acre Woods with their Petting Farm. During your visit, you’ll meet the animals, hear their stories, share in the miracles, feel the love, and heal with positive energy. This is another place where a picnic is a must! Not only will you have tons of fun, but you can also relax, take in the sights, and enjoy a stroll on the trails.

You’ll find their animals are extremely friendly yet quirky with diverse personalities, but something they have in common is their love of attention! Don’t forget to check out the Gardens, where you can discover new herbs, traditional flowers and watch the veggies grow.

Please call a day or more ahead of your visit to book your session. Admission is $10.00.
