At the farm

We went to the farm yesterday. Its kind of crappy, but its free so we go. That being said I love in comparison to Thanksgiving Point's petting zoo. I hate their petting zoo, I know lots of people like it, but I hate it. The best part about wheeler farm is its free, so we can just zoom over any old time.
Here is my forlorn gangsta kid, with the baby chicks. He loves the baby chicks.
Yea! Thanks Aunt Danna for a picture of me with both kids.
J with Julz and the geese. My son was getting a kick out of chasing the geese. Once one turned to chase him and honked I put a stop to it. I am scared of geese, they chased me when I was a wee lass.

NOTE: This is a real working farm as their untitled website tells me. This is not a petting zoo or a feeding zoo. You are not allow to touch the animals. Although we did touch the sheep by the road. What it means by a real working farm is that there are farm hands there doing farm work, they don't talk to you or entertain you. They seem to go out of their way to exclude you from what work they are doing. We still go, its free, my kid loves the geese, and the baby chickens, I love the baby sheep. We spend our $1.50 for each person over two to ride the tractor ride, and go home. I think its overpriced to ride the hayride, but as my husband pointed out where else can my son ride a tractor trailer? Anywhere I could think of, costs more than $1.50 in gas. Plus this farm is by Target, so its a twofer, since Target is a little too far away to go regularly.


  1. where is this farm? I wish there was a REAL petting zoo around here...

  2. Omigosh, I hate geese to this day. I got bit on the cheek when I was a kid. In fact, I think it might have actually been at Wheeler Farm!!

  3. how fun! I want to come!
    Hey we are going to the Renaissance fair in Ogden on sat. may 15th and to the SL zoo. Want to come?
