Join us on May 17th from 10am to noon for a truly unforgettable experience at our enchanting homestead, in collaboration with Little Wildlings of Chattanooga. This free, family-friendly event offers a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with nature, interact with our diverse and lovable animals, and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Situated amidst the lush, green countryside, our homestead is home to a variety of animals that add charm to the idyllic surroundings. As you wander through our verdant pastures, you'll have the chance to meet our friendly kunekune pigs, including two delightful piglet litters that are sure to steal your heart. Our two dexter cows, with their gentle dispositions, are sure to be a hit with both children and adults alike.

As you continue exploring our delightful haven, you'll also encounter our flock of chickens, ducks, and turkeys that grace the landscape with their playful presence. Don't forget to say hello to our two adorable donkeys and three goats who are always eager to make new friends. Each animal adds a unique character and charm to our homestead, making it the perfect setting for a fun-filled, educational day.

In addition to meeting our captivating creatures, you'll have the chance to relax and unwind by the soothing sounds of the creek that runs through our property. Children are welcome to splash and play in the gentle waters of the creek, making this event the perfect blend of adventure and relaxation. Be sure to dress accordingly, as the terrain may be muddy, and we encourage you to fully embrace the outdoors.

The safety of our guests and animals is of utmost importance to us. We kindly request that you follow all safety guidelines during your visit. Please do not enter any pasture or barn without receiving consent from a staff member, as we want to ensure the wellbeing of both our guests and our furry friends. Our team will be on hand to provide any guidance or assistance you may need to make your experience as enjoyable and safe as possible.

In collaboration with Little Wildlings of Chattanooga, we have designed this event to encourage families to step out of their daily routines and immerse themselves in the enchanting world of our homestead. Little Wildlings of Chattanooga is a local organization that is dedicated to fostering a love and appreciation for nature in young children. Through various activities, games, and experiences, they aim to inspire the next generation to cherish and protect our natural world. Check out their Facebook page for other local events! A big thank you to Katie Sakaluk for co-hosting this event with us!

By attending our Homestead Hangout, you and your family will not only have an enjoyable day filled with laughter and learning but also contribute to a greater cause. Your participation will help raise awareness about the importance of preserving our environment and instilling a love for nature in the hearts of our children.

So mark your calendars and gather your family for an unforgettable experience at our Homestead Hangout with Little Wildlings of Chattanooga on May 17th, from 10am to noon. We look forward to sharing our love for nature and animals with you and creating lasting memories together.
