Glad we stopped here. Took a wagon ride around the complex, saw lots of barnyard animals. Got to pet a bunny and see baby pigs! Cute dog show too. We were there about an hour.

Excellent place for the kids and it's free. Grand kids love it. Get to milk a cow and there's a dog show. What's not to enjoy?

Great for dog show participants but the temperature is freezing for spectators! Bring long pants, socks and a sweatshirt hoodie or fleece to wear if you are sitting and watching the dog show!
