The Greeley Museums is celebrating spring with young animals at the annual, Baby Animal Days event at the Plumb Farm. From April 8 – 21, furry friends will be visiting the farm, such as kittens, goats, horses, pigs, sheep, ponies, rabbits, chicks and ducklings.
The event is open daily for two weeks. Hours Monday through Saturday are 9 am-noon and 1-4 pm and Sundays 1 pm – 4pm. Admission is $2 for ages two and older.
Pony rides will be 10am - 12pm and 1 - 3pm on Saturday and 1 - 4pm on Sunday for an extra $1 per ride.
Volunteers are stationed at the animal pens and stalls to answer questions and ensure the safety of the visitors and animals. Visitors will be allowed to touch the animals based on instructions. Many exciting activities will also be available, including historic games and riding stick animals.
Restrooms, picnic tables and hand-washing areas are on site, and there is on-street parking along 39th Ave. Allow about an hour for the visit. Walk-in visitors are welcome, but groups of 10 or more are asked to reserve a time by calling the Greeley Museums’ office at 350-9220.
Most of the animals this year are on loan from members of the FFA club at Greeley West High School through an agreement between the school district and city.
The Plumb Farm is a Colorado Centennial Farm that has been in the same family for over a hundred years. It is located at 39th Ave. and 10th St., just across from the post office.
