Wheeler Farm, Salt Lake City

farming and agriculture
One of my favorite places to take my children is Wheeler Farm. I don't know if it is nostalgia, or what but I love it. And lucky for me, so do they!  One piece of advice however, don't go to Wheeler Farm the day after a big rain.  One word: MUD!

Wheeler Farm is absolutely free.  You can wander around, let the kids check out all of the farm animals and if they are brave, maybe even pet a horse.  There are all kinds of great farm animals, and if you are there at just the right time in the spring you might even be treated to a sight of little baby lambs and kids.  (I'm talking about goats, not children!)

You might even be lucky enough to chase a chicken.  But I don't recommend it.  I do recommend bringing something to feed the ducks.  And the geese. Especially the geese.  You don't want a hungry goose after you. . . .

They do offer pony rides and wagon rides, but both charge a small fee.  But honestly, climbing on the old tractors, climbing into the tree house and feeding the ducks are plenty for my kids!  
If you go: 
Monday to Saturday 9:00 to 5:00

  1. We love Wheeler! We've done the wagon ride, but it was kinda pricey for the four of us. We do milk the cows, though. I think they have two times: 4 and 5 pm. (It used to just be 5, but they added 4 a while back.) It costs .50 a kid, and obviously you have to call and get a token in advance. Be careful, though, because one particular cow likes to poop while she's getting milked and we've been splattered!

  2. Thank you for this! It would be great to have a farm to bring the kids to, where they can just have fun and still learn something. I'm sure they'll be amazed that food from supermarkets come from places like these!
