The farm has basic farm animals. Which are penned and you just look on. For your entrance fee, you get to look at them, and for additional $ you can buy some pellets and might be able to coax them to the fence for a nibble. But full goat bellies make for some lazy barn animals. Also for additional $ you can buy a horse led walk around the corral for your youngin's... if they have enough volunteers working that day. You never know if you'll get to. Staff is YOUNG and inexperienced with animals, so they don't have much info for you. The park next door is also a real treat. Don't expect much... It used to be free and you will soon realize why. Kids thought it was just ok.
I take my 4yr and 7yr grandchildren to the farm. It's a safe place to let them run around and visit with the farm animals. They love climbing into the Silo, pumping water from the old fashioned pump, climb on the tractor and feed the animals. The highlight of the visit is the chance to ride a pony. We visit the Farm 3-4 times a year and each visit is always enjoyed by all of us. Right next door is a nice park so they get some play time there as well. A safe and clean place to visit, the employees are all very nice and take time to talk with my grandkids about the animals . We are very lucky to have a place like Martinez Farm in our Community
My grand daughter lives just 2 blocks from The Farm... It is a delightful place close to the Old Town suburban area. The staff is charming and full of information about the animals...Olivia had a blast.. We visited twice during my visit. I bought her a pony ride-on her favorite, named Brownie... This visit to Fort Collins was the first time I had met Olivia-great fun, and a great photo opportunity at The Farm..I have photos of the pony ride and so much more...Olivia kissing the goat and great shots of both of us on the tractor in the playground.. I hope this park continues to entertain kids and parents... I look forward to my next visit to see Olivia and to visit The Farm (double A batteries in the gift shop would be a plus-great for grandmas' cameras!)
A friend with three boys alerted me to this place. I think it's lovely. It has a gift shop (complete with souvenirs or snacks), a play area and plenty of animals to ogle. At the time, my toddler was about a year old--but she still enjoyed it. I think she'd like it even more now that she's close to three. I recommend it for any families sick of taking their kids to the park or mall (raises hand!) :)
This is a great place to look and learn about all the animals like ponies,chickens,cows and everything else.Yu can take your kids and get hay rides and on March29th you can get pony rides trust me you will have fun up there.During the spring you get to see lots of baby animals. You get to see what some of the animals eat and how they live. This is a great place to take kids. I really recomond this place for all ages.
We absolutley love the this place; the staff is really friendly, the animals are amazing. Every time we go, we learn something new. You can help feed the animals, pet the animals, and learn what they do for the world. I would highly recommend it.
Our 4 kids have been going there since they were born. We enjoy being outdoors watching the animals. They learn a lot too! They learn about how each of the animals contributes to their lives daily. They also really enjoy feeding the sheep and the goats grain, you can purchase it in the silo gift shop. There are other interactive exhibits as well. The farm is a great place to take a picnic. In the Spring there are always baby animals to enjoy. Check out what is going on at the farm around the holidays they do special activities. You can even have your birthday party at the farm. You can't beat the price.
I have 2 daughters under 4 and they love it! They get to see lots of animals. Many times there are babies too. The staff is really friendly and like to educate.
Through the City, there are also programs where kids can learn about farm chores, take pony riding lessons, milk a cow, go on hay rides and more.
An affordable way to get the kids outside for something different.
