This past Mother’s Day weekend my family and I spent a day at Mulberry Lane Farm located just east of Sherwood, WI. This was our first time visiting the farm and boy, were we impressed! The farm is a family-owned attraction where kids and adults of all ages get a hands-on experience with a wide variety of farm animals. Here you can milk a cow, ride a pony, kiss a piglet, catch a chicken, chase some ducks and hold baby goats. Some other animals that you’ll see during your visit are sheep, turkeys, cats, hens and peacocks. Enjoy a free hayride behind the farm’s tractor for a complete tour of Mulberry Lane. Much to a mother’s delight, the farm is beautifully maintained even with hundreds of animals and people roaming daily.
For my almost two year old daughter, Mulberry Lane Farm was like seeing a children’s book come to life and a day we won’t soon forget. She couldn’t believe her eyes when all of the animals that she previously had only seen in all her favorite books had come to life right in front of her. It was such a special experience to witness her not only see, but also interact with many of these animals for the first time ever. We could barely pry her away from the rambunctious “piggies” but once we did she was in heaven riding one of the ponies and waddling with the ducks. I’m surprised we were able to get her to leave the farm without bringing home a baby goat!
Mulberry Lane Farm allows carry-ins of all kinds and offers picnic areas so families can pack a lunch to stay and play the whole day. During the fall the hayride includes a stop at the pumpkin patch where kids can pick their own pumpkin for free.
