Once Spring has sprung, what better place to celebrate blossoms in bloom and sunny skies than at a farm? For a truly authentic and welcoming farm experience, pack your kiddos and a picnic lunch, then head out to Issaquah’s Fox Hollow Farm. Set along Issaquah Creek in the shadow of Squak Mountain, Fox Hollow Farm brims with green pastures, colorful blossoms, organic gardens, and—you guessed it—enough animals to keep your mini famers content for hours.
Springtime welcomes tons of baby animals, from kittens to piglets, and kids are encouraged to interact with them. Little ones can treat the resident pigs to frozen peas, go for pony rides, get some cuddles in with baby bunnies, or nuzzle up to a “mini cows.” When your animal-lovers have had their fill of warm and fuzzies, head over to the huge inflatables for some major bouncing, or play “homestead” at the Farm Villages. This ridiculously charming set of miniature homes and cottages is complete with play food and furniture.
Tractor-loving tots can try their hand at pint-sized John Deere motorized vehicles, or hop aboard the farm’s little locomotive. When you work up an appetite, there are plenty of places for a picnic pit-stop. Snack on fresh fruit from the farm’s market or bring your own lunch to enjoy at the edge of the creek. Stay, play, and fall in love with farm life.
For even more spectacular fun, visit Fox Hollow Farm for a Fall Festival day. In addition to their usual attractions, the Farm puts together all sorts of seasonal activities—have a blast traversing the Farm's hay-maze and haunted forest!
