When looking to make memories in Michigan, there is no substitute for heading to the farm. Whether it’s in the spring, summer, or fall there are endless options for the whole family to enjoy from picking fresh produce or visiting the barnyard animals.
If you are looking for fun for the whole family in West Michigan, then Lewis Adventure Farm and Zoo is the place to go.
On a recent weekend trip to Ludington my daughter and I stopped in the town of New Era to finally be able to check out Lewis Adventure Farm and Zoo.
We first started our visit by taking a wagon ride out to the orchard to pick a peck of apples.
With our general admission ticket, we were able to take one barrel ride and one carousel ride.
Also included in your ticket are tons of barnyard activities to enjoy. One of the things I loved about this farm was that they had two huge jumping pillows which is always a favorite for my children.
What was really amazing was that the two were separated by height and I love that because oftentimes on jumping pillows my youngest can get overwhelmed by taller jumpers.
Barnyard Animals & Exotic Animal Encounters
After riding through the farm by barrel and wagon we fed some of the barnyard animals. Food can be purchased for a small separate cost.
This isn’t your typical farmyard petting zoo. You’ll also get to see exotic animals and can even purchase different animal encounter experiences.
We were delighted to find out that Splash Acres was still open for the season. After spending the afternoon playing and visiting the animals it was nice to cool down at the splash pad.
Countless Photo Opportunities
With countless photo opportunities spread throughout the farm ranging from a hand painted mural by Daydreams by Paige to towering skeletons you’ll be sure to come home with some frame-worthy photos.
Farm Market & Bakery
There is a market and bakery with many specialty treats. My daughter and I were able to cool off with a cider sundae which included cider, ice cream, whip cream, and a donut. Good luck choosing from all of the tasty options!
