Smolak Farms


Looking for a family adventure where you can enjoy creatures and creature comforts (e.g., ice cream)? Here’s a great lead from my mama pal Evadne:

"We recently went strawberry picking at Smolak Farms and the whole family (grandparents included!) had such a blast. The fruit picking experience in and of itself was wonderful, but the farm had so many extras! My 2-year old loved seeing the deer, peacocks, and llamas at the petting zoo, and he expended a ton of energy on the climbing structures (especially the tractor). I was even able to nurse my 4-month-old under one of the umbrella picnic tables, while downing some pizza & ice cream. We definitely plan to visit again and next time we hope to squeeze in a hayride."
Editor’s Note: Smolak Farms also offers birthday party services for kids turning 3 and older.
