Get close to pigs, goats, chickens, kangaroos and more at these fun family farms

It’s not spring without baby animals and other farm fun, so grab your kiddos and get ready to oohh and ahhh over furry and feathered friends, take a hayride and learn about spring planting. Use the arrows above the image to check out some of the best farms to visit around the Seattle area.

Many of these facilities are open year-round; others are open only for the summer season, or starting in spring. We recommend double-checking current hours of operation and admission prices (where not marked as “free”) in advance of a planned visit.
