Davis Farmland opens for the season on Thursday April 12th. We have oodles of fun events, games, and new adventures planned for spring, summer, and fall.

Spring at Davis Farmland is all about the babies. We have baby goats, pigs, sheep, alpacas, llamas and more. Bottle feed a calf, collect chicken eggs, and even makeover a donkey!

Summer at Davis farmland will keep you cool. Make a splash with Moo Moo and friends on Saturday June 16th, as Davis Farmland opens Adventure Play and Spray for the season. Play hula hoop games, musical towels, and water bowling! Then slide into fun at "Surf the Waves" slip and slide! You'll be splishing and splashing all summer long.

Fall-tastic fun at farmland includes U-pick apples and pumpkins.

• The orchard has an abundance of scrumptious McIntosh and Cortland apples just waiting to be picked from Mid- September through October

• The fall fun carries over to the pumpkin patch in late September when pumpkin fest begins and our patch is ready to be picked!

• The season ends with three weekends of daytime, Fright-Free fun at Moo Moo's Halloween Party.

We hope you can join us for all the fun on the farm this season!

New Babies

It’s that time again! There are two new baby sheep at Davis Farmland. These sheep are Horned Dorset twins – one boy and one girl! They were born on June 13 to Mrs. Fluffylady and father, Pretty Boy.
There are few breeds of sheep that can breed all year round and the Horned Dorset is one of them. The females, called ewes, are good mothers and milkers, which help the lambs to grow rapidly. Multiple births are not uncommon for this breed; as was evident when Mrs. Fluffylady had twins! These sheep are an endangered species with less than 10,000 in existence and are now on the American Rare Breeds Conservancy's Conservation Priority Watchlist.
Horned Dorset sheep are extremely hardy animals and make a great addition to the farm! These two twins are strong and healthy but they still need names! To submit your favorite choice, go to https://www.davisfarmland.com/farmland/contest.html. The winner will receive a season pass good for up to four people.

Get ready for the ultimate cool down! Beat the heat this summer when Adventure Play & Spray opens at Davis Farmland on Saturday, June 18th.

Adventure Play & Spray offers two spray grounds – one for toddlers and one for children up to age twelve and their parents. The toddler spray ground features mini sprinklers and misters, while the larger spray ground has shooting geysers and fountains to cool off the kids. There are also water tables, horse cannons, showering sunflowers, misting spray rings and even a pretend car wash and gas station.

You can stay cool and relax in our shade pods, cabanas, thatched umbrellas and even birthday cabanas to celebrate your big kahuna’s special day!

Play & Spray houses the largest purification system of its kind. All water is recycled into a huge underground storage tank and completely filtered every fifteen minutes. The water is computer monitored continuously and carefully chlorinates as needed. Zero-depth water play and our revolutionary filtration system make this the safest water playground for your children and also the most fun!

Parents and children alike will love our Splash-tacular activities this weekend – including a water balloon toss, temporary tattoos, the limbo with Moo Moo and even a conga line over to our new Slip and Slide! Kids can soak up the suds in our Bubble Blast and enjoy making their own foamy beards. Those with extra energy can try the new “Surf the Wave” Slip and Slide!

Don’t miss these exciting events during Splash-tacular Weekend – Davis Farmland is overflowing with fun!

Harvesting Heritage

While most families are vacationing on Memorial Day Weekend, farmers are working hard to prepare for the first harvest hay of the season. There are multiple steps in this harvesting process that take many days to accomplish and require excellent weather.

The first step is mowing the fields with a giant, six-propeller lawnmower which is attached to a tractor. Next, a large rake is used to form the hay into rows. Once the rows dry, the grass turns into hay. Following that, a special machine called the round baler is attached to a tractor and scoops up the rows of hay. Finally, when the round baler is full of hay, the backdoor is opened and a giant round bale rolls out. The newly made bales are placed into pastures where animals can roam freely and eat them. However, the farmers have often heard the animals complaining that “they just can’t get a square meal.”
