{Giveaway} Green Meadows Petting Farm 25th Birthday Party

These days, it’s rare to find educational and entertaining activities that appeal to a wide range of ages, but Green Meadows Petting Farm delivers in the form of good, old fashioned family fun. Ideal for a day outing off the beaten path (ie: I-4), the Farm is nestled on 50 acres in Kissimmee and provides the perfect setting for kids and adults to reconnect with nature.

horseWith our infant and toddler OMB “kid kritics” in tow, we recently paid Green Meadows a visit and were quickly reminded how farm animals provide a truly sensory experience! Our guided tour, which is thoughtfully designed to educate guests about farm animals by touch, sight, smell and sound included hands-on experiences with cows, ducks, goats and more!

Additionally, pony rides, a tractor-drawn hayride and an open-air train ride were a hit with the kids and provide a nice break from the heat and walking tour. The Farm also offers multiple play spaces and covered picnic pavilions.

tractorIn honor of its 25th Birthday, Green Meadows has invited Orlando Moms Blog readers to its birthday celebration Sept. 20, 21 and 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Guests will enjoy a special birthday rate of $13 which includes:

  • Live entertainment by local country artist Kenyon Lockry (Saturday and Sunday only) and Ernie Sites a national yodeling champion and trick roping, country-singing cowboy
  • Osceola County Fire Department and Sheriff’s Office demonstrations
  • Musical entertainment by the Osceola County Historical Society live
  • Face painting
  • Hay and train rides
  • Cow milking and up close interaction with farm animals
  • Birthday cake, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts giveaways and more!

Best of all, one lucky Orlando Moms Blog reader will win a Family Four Pack of tickets (Enter below now through Thursday, Sept. 19. Winner will be notified by email.)!

Before you visit the Farm, read these OMB Recommendations for Parents:

  • Plan to have fun and get dirty! If you’re not a fan of dirty hands, shirts and shoes, bring hand sanitizer and a change of clothes. (Please note: restrooms and hand washing/sanitizing stations are easily accessible and readily available throughout the farm.)
  • Wear closed-toe shoes. You (and the kids) will be walking on dirt paths and playing in animal pens.
  • Pack your “all terrain” stroller. Again, dirt paths aren’t always umbrella stroller friendly, so plan accordingly.
  • Bring lunch! The Farm permits coolers, so save yourself a few dollars and carry your favorite snacks and beverages.
  • Schedule your day with naps in mind. If napping is still a part of your daily routine, plan your day accordingly. The Farm’s guided tours last 2+ hours, with the option to hop on and off the tour if necessary.
