WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– It was family farm day at The Children’s Museum in Downtown, Wilmington this weekend.
Kids of all ages were able to get up close and personal with a wide range of barnyard animals from goats to chickens, and even some rabbits.
The children could pet the farm animals, including a ten week old pig.
They could also make their own butter and learn about the farm to table process. This gave children and interactive approach to better understand what it is like to be a farmer.
There was face painting and pony rides for the families to enjoy. Even the staff joined in on the fun by dressing up to match the theme.
Jim Karl, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum said, “this is one of my favorites, I think certainly with the North Carolina, the agrarian nature of a lot of what we do. This is a great fit.”
This was the sixth year for the family farm day and it is just one of the many events The Children’s Museum offers. Staff says this event attracts nearly four hundred families.
