Last year (October 2017), my family went Apple Picking at Noggins Corner Farm and it was a beautiful experience (been our first Apple Picking experience).
We decided to go to another farm this year, so we went to Willowbank Farm. Even though we consider Noggins Corner Farm to be a bigger farm with more varieties of apples, our time at Willowbank Farm was also worthwhile.
According to Willowbank Farm’s website, it is a working farm which grows a variety of crops that visitors can pick. Six generations of the Johnson family have been involved with agriculture for both business and pleasure. Today, all of the family work on the farm as “stress relief” from their daily careers away from Willowbank.
They also have a petting zoo, where we saw and petted the farm animals. We met Gary, the goat and the miniature donkeys. The farm also has calves, ducklings, goslings and chickens, they say their bunny family is growing.
We also saw some horses, they were really tall and big.
The farm dogs were seen walking freely around the farm, though they all appeared friendly. The farm also has pigs.
After visiting the farm market and u-pick, we took a stroll through the red and white horse barn where numerous antique horse-drawn vehicles were on display. Some are said to be dating back over 100 years.
Other items of interest were also seen in the museum such as a silver mounted harness, as well as numerous antique agricultural and household items.
Overall, we had a nice time.
I’ll be sharing some videos on my social media accounts.
