If you want to experience a family farm without actually tilling the land yourself, Hannimal Farm near Chesapeake Ridge offers the next best thing. This 20-acre working farm is actually owned by a family, the Hannas, who bought it five years ago. They and their three sons embarked on a labor of love when they started to build up the farm, creating a destination for tourists, grocery shoppers, and animal lovers alike.
Perhaps Hannimal Farm’s most popular feature is its petting zoo. You can come and meet the animals on the farm—complete with cow-cuddling, pony rides, and “animal-grams”—or have the Hannas bring their barnyard animals to a party. If you’re looking for a fun event space in the fresh air, the farm also hosts bonfires and hayrides in the fall. If you want to stock up on fresh, healthy food, check out the modest market where grass-fed beef and pork are sold. You can also arrange for a tour of the farm if you’re looking for a fun outing for the family! Stop by or give them a call to see what else they have to offer.
