Hay Ride


Bring your children on a hay ride around some of the 500 acres of pastures, streams, ponds and hedgerows that make up Cherry Grove Farm, right in the heart of Lawrenceville, NJ. You will meet the cows and calves, some piglets, goats, chickens, bees and some of the birds, wild animals, plants and trees that live here. You’ll discover how all these things are linked together and work together to create an interconnected farm ecosystem. You may even get a chance to see the milking of our cows and the cheesemakers making some cheese.
