Farm Tour Themes
- Kids on the Farm Group Tour: Explore our historic dairy farm with hands-on fun as you meet our goats, cows, chickens, and ponies. Learn interesting animal facts and local history as you travel back in time to when Bellevue was mostly farmland and forest. Then, go into the animal barn to see where the animals sleep at night and work on barn "chores" with child-sized pails and rakes.
- Fuzzy Farm Friends Group Tour: Have you ever wondered where yarn and wool sweaters come from? How does a sheep give us a pair of warm wool socks? Meet the Kelsey Creek Farm sheep, watch a farmer spin wool into yarn, and practice the skill of carding wool all while learning about sheep and fiber processing. Children will create a fuzzy sheep craft to take home.
- Pioneers on the Farm Group Tour: Imagine life in Bellevue in the 1880s. Children spend time looking around the Fraser cabin, built in 1888, and learning about what life was like for the pioneers when they arrived in the Bellevue area. Practice living history skills by grinding wheat, and go on a farm walk to learn how some of our farm animals would have been used by the pioneers.
- Springtime in the Barnyard Group Tour: Welcome springtime in the barnyard with a hands-on tour among our favorite animals. Oink like a pig, befriend a bunny, feed a cow, admire a chicken, plus more. Learn about their care, then get dirty in the garden planting pumpkin seeds.
- Fall at the Farm Group Tour: Experience harvest season in a traditional way. Visit with some of our friendly farm animals, work on barn "chores" with child-sized pails and rakes, and tour the garden and pumpkin patch. Children finish up by choosing a pumpkin from our harvest-themed off-the-vine pumpkin patch! Extra fee for pumpkins.
