Tour Southern Fresh Farms -  Things To Do With Kids

Southern Fresh FarmsOver the past year or so we have heard about Southern Fresh Farms. It is located in Fort Myers, Florida near the entrance to Paseo. We finally had the chance to visit the farm. It did not disappoint and it is free to get in!

I thought we would feed a few farm animals and leave but there was so much more to see and learn at the agriculture park.

When we arrived we walked into an actual farmers market and a little area where you can buy different fresh food. The kids quickly got their cup of carrots - $1 per cup to feed the farm animals. The lady working there informed me all were rescued animals. As we made our way back to the animals we past strawberry fields, greenhouses, and many more fields of vegetables. The boys fed the cows (the cows licked them and I thought my kids would never stop laughing), goats, donkeys,sheep and chickens. We walked back through the farm admiring all the beautiful fruit and vegetables that are being sold at the farmer’s market right there at the farm.

There is a pond with fish and turtles which of course we fed. The kids loved watching the fish jump around getting the food. Last but not least we got to play on the playground which is a great thing because parents like to be able to sit and relax for a little bit while the kids burn the energy out.

I learned while I was there you can actually rent a season garden box and be apart of a garden club at the farm. The farm is also used as a venue for birthday parties and weddings.

We love finding places that are not expensive to do and the kids actually enjoy. Southern Fresh Farms was a great day of fun and we definitely will be back! If you're looking for fun things to do with kids, this is it.
