The last couple of years it's been rainy and with very small children, it's just not worth it if someone is near-meltdown. Myself included. Ahem.
Prairieland Dairy is a local diary farm that is owned/run by 9 families who have joined together to make a great local company flourish. Their dairy products are ones that I buy because it's local, there are no artificial hormones, and it's a competitive price. I love their cream for our home-made ice cream.
A couple ducks that Ankka just loved to pet, the Prairie Day even had a free petting zoo with goats, geese, a pony, dogs, barn kittens, a cow, and an exhibit on bees. My kids could have stayed here for easily a half hour.
The only thing we didn't get to see, unfortunately, was their huge kids tent. We had only planned to go out until about noon, since we had a long drive home for nap times, but next year we'll try to see that, too. Since the kids didn't even know about it, they didn't mind, but there was face painting, corn boxes, and tons of fun games to play.
If you're local, this is such a fun family outing. It's a similar experience to a local carnival or county fair, only with free food (pork sandwiches, chips, carrots, milk), and free ice cream. Mark your calendars for next year's event and GO EARLY!
