Fam­ily Fun

Where Orlando - - Contents - BY NANCY DEVAULT

Spend the day on a farm or get VIP treat­ment at the theme parks.

Farm at­trac­tions are a great al­ter­na­tive to en­joy­ing the Florida sun­shine with­out the crowds. Noth­ing beats the mem­o­rable op­por­tu­nity to cuddle with a soft lamb, feed a cu­ri­ous goat or ride on a bright­green trac­tor for some hands-on barn­yard agri­tain­ment. So, grab your denim over­alls and head to the grass­lands to dig up good ol’ fam­ily fun. Just 20 min­utes from Walt Dis­ney World, Green Mead­ows Farm yields an ideal coun­try set­ting with mas­sive oak trees and roam­ing live­stock, in­clud­ing Elmer, an Asian wa­ter buf­falo. Touch and learn about 300 an­i­mals, such as chick­ens, don­keys, ducks, geese, goats, pigs, rab­bits, sheep and tur­keys. Hop on a pony, a train or a trac­tor-drawn hayride. Hey, you can even milk a cow ... check that off your bucket list! Save the date for Corn Fest Sept. 24-25, their Pump­kin Patch Oct. 1-Nov. 6, Trail of Jack-O-Lan­terns and Ooky-Spooky Haunted House week­ends in Oc­to­ber and Hal­loween Fun Days Oct. 29-30. 1368 S. Poin­ciana Blvd., Kis­sim­mee; 407. 846.0770, green­mead­ows­farm.com.
