The Tuscaloosa Barnyard is perfect for your group.
Our farm was designed with a class like yours in mind. Each area is laid out for parents and children to participate in what we call "rotations". It's a structured environment yet flexible & fun!
We spend about 20 mins in each rotation working with the children in activities such as bottle feeding a baby animal, petting and feeding other farm animals, and going on a tractor drawn wagon ride. We also offer educational time where they'll learn a little about chickens, milking a cow and farm life.
They'll enjoy other attractions such as the corn crib, rat racers, life-sized model milking cow, feeding the ducks and fish and the super fun cow train. Horse rides are available at additional cost. In the fall we provide a pumpkin patch and other festivities. There's even play time so everyone can just relax and enjoy themselves. We have 2 playgrounds and the amazing jumping pillow. Hand washing stations, drinking fountains and restrooms are on site. For lunch time there are 4 pavilions with picnics tables.
We also have a country store where guests can buy souvenir t-shirts for only $5 each as well as drinks and snacks. Before loading the bus at the end of the day we give everyone popsicles.
We look forward to hosting your group!
