When you need a break from the theme park queues and incessant screams of delight you might consider taking a young family on a more peaceful trip to Green Meadows Farm at South Poinciana Blvd in Kissimmee, Orlando.
A visit to this 50 acre petting farm includes a two hour guided tour of the farm by one of the friendly hosts. Children can learn about the sheep, pigs, goats, donkeys, chickens, ducks, peacocks and water buffalo AND milk a cow, chase a chicken, ride a pony or even a train! Bring your own lunch and eat it in one of the picnic areas or alternatively purchase drinks and snacks from the general store – the choice is yours.
With events running throughout the year (like Easter Egg hunts, Halloween fun days) admission is free for children aged 2 and under otherwise $23 per person / senior citizens $19 each. For $3 you can rent a Radio Flyer kids wagon to lighten the load of carrying heavy bags or little people with tired legs! Find out more about the latest events at the official Green Meadows Farm website.
