Family Fun: Minnesota Zoo Farm Babies

Springtime means Minnesota Zoo Farm Babies time whether Minnesota is ready to give them a warm welcome or not! minnesota zoo farm babies

I’m guessing most of the newly-born lambs, calves, piglets and the rest have been spending their time huddled around heat lamps in the barn instead of basking in the sun at the Wells Fargo Family Farm. The days are warming up! Opening day looks like it will be in the upper 40s, after a week of mostly 40s!

The animals will be greeting guests from March 23 to April 30, 2018. In addition to getting hands-on with the babies, there are tons of other weekend activities to enjoy out at the Wells Fargo Family Farm area of the zoo. The other weekend offerings are as follows:

  • Tram rides from the grain elevator (which, by the way, is a fun attraction in itself!) will run from 11:30am-1:30pm. 
  • Cow milking demonstration 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. & 3:00 p.m
