Friendly Welcome Wagon

When we arrived at Sugar Roots Farm, we were greeted by a very friendly, furry welcome wagon. Charlie came bounding up to us and was very eager to introduce himself. My boys were immediately in love. 

Hands-On Fun

Sugar Roots is a non-profit, sustainable, free-range farm that embraces active learning. It encourages exploration and teaches compassion for animals and sustainability.

The kids were allowed to explore the farm, and we bought animal feed for the llamas. One llama was perhaps unhappy with our presence and spat on one of the boys.

While very surprised, my son found this hysterical and still talks about it. We also met the cows, chickens, pigs, and horses.

Yummy Treats

During our visit, eggs, honey, and produce from the farm were all available for purchase. They also sell bottled water and snacks.

We purchased honey still on the comb and some eggs. Everything was fresh and wonderful.

There is even a picnic area to eat your treats. 

Field Trips and Camps

The farm is available for field trips, birthday parties, and retreats. They also offer holiday and summer camps

We definitely enjoyed our day at the farm and look forward to visiting again.
