A Must Do Family Day: Mulberry Lane Farm

Mulberry Lane Farm in Sherwood

Have you ever been out to Mulberry Lane Farm? The locally owned petting farm is located just 3 miles east of Sherwood. It is one of our family’s favorite things to do in Sherwood!

Not only is it educational, but it’s fun as you get up close and personal with goats, lambs, chicks, ducks, kittens, horses, and more. Everything is very clean, and the staff is super friendly. They also have a great place for a picnic, so pack lunches!

Your animal lover will love Spring here! This time of year, the farm is buzzing with babies – baby chicks, baby ducklings, baby kid goats, baby lambs, baby piglets, baby calves, baby ponies, baby kittens, and baby bunnies. It’s hard to resist wanting to bring some of them home.

Here is what you need to know for your visit to plan your special (and magical) day at the farm
