Farm Star Living

Spring has officially sprung, and it's time for growth and beautiful transformation! We hope that you'll allow yourself to bloom this season, too, and spend plenty of time outdoors in nature and immersing yourself in all that spring has to offer. Speaking of, we are sharing what farms have to offer you this spring season, and here you'll find some fantastic, educational and fun activities that will be great for to only you, your friends and family, but also our beloved farmers!

The following offers five different activities that you can enjoy and are sure to never forget! However, don't forget that we feature more than thirty great farm fun adventures you can take all over the USA!

TIPS: Dress comfy, wear sneakers that you don't mind getting dirty (or muddy!), and bring sunscreen.

Also, make sure on your road trip that you bring lots of great, healthy and energy-packed snacks with you as you want to be able to keep up your energy on the farm all day long! Our friends at Sunsweet now have to-go snack packs of some of our favorite dried fruits - dates, prunes and dried fruits.

PETTING ZOOS

If there's anything more uplifting than the weather, it has to be the baby animals. That’s right, studies have shown that seeing cute animals can have an overall positive affect on humans – and we believe it! How can you be a grump when there's a baby alpaca giving you a big ole kiss?! Find a local petting zoo near you to experience the natural connection.
