RONKS, Pa. (WHTM) — Springtime on a farm means baby animals. At Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, guests can meet — and yes, pet — the farm’s new babies during Saturday’s Baby Animal Festival.
“The Baby Animal Festival is showcasing all the baby animals that were born this spring here on the farm,” Brian Groff, animal caretaker at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, said “There’s mini cows, and we have ducks, and we have rabbits, and we have plenty of baby goats to go around, as well.”
On top of that, guests can also visit the farm’s piglets, lambs, and chicks during the event.
Fun fact: Sheep are fairly timid animals, but goats are a lot like dogs — they’re super friendly and excited to meet people (and if given the chance, they might nibble on your fingers).
Cherry Crest is known nationwide for its corn maze, which will open at the beginning of July, but it offers more than that. In addition to the farm animal area where the baby animals are housed, people visiting the Baby Animal Festival can also check out the site’s nearly 200-foot-long Freedom Slide, the apple cannons, the paintball shooting range, and more.
