Barnyard Adventures & Family Fun!

Educational Outreach Programs for Schools, Preschools & Daycares

Outreach programs allow students the opportunity to see and pet animals up close and person. During your program, students will meet 8-10 friendly farm animal ambassadors from Lucky Ladd Farms and will learn many fun facts about these cute critters.

Animals are set up in an attractive self-contained fenced area. Lucky Ladd Farms handles the set-up and clean up of our exhibit space. We provide at least two trained animal handlers so someone is always available to answer questions, supervise animals and help guarantee a great experience for your students. Hand-sanitizer stations with signage reminding everyone about the importance of proper "hand-washing" for good health and hygiene is provided.

Animal assortment may include:

Goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, miniature horse, miniature donkey, pig, rabbits, llama and alpaca.

As required by law, we are USDA licensed and inspected. We meet and exceed all requirements of the Animal Welfare Act. Additionally, Lucky Ladd Farms carries a commercial liability insurance policy.
