Spring Break at Springton Manor Farm

Spring break is here and with it comes the added responsibility of entertaining the kids. Of course, they would be content to sit in front of their video games all day live in that bizarre world called Minecraft (don’t even get me started). And as tempting as that is some days, I really do love getting out and doing things as a family.

Luckily, we live in an area that is overflowing with fun things to do, many of those which don’t take much planning. Thursday we had a spur of the moment trip to one of those places- Springton Manor Farm. Springton Manor is part of the Chester County Park System and is a great local resource for both fun and education. One of our favorite parts of Springton Manor is the farm and that’s what drew us to the park that day. Recently there were 9 duroc pigs born and lambs as well so it was the perfect time to visit.

Here’s a peek at some of the animals…

There’s also some history to learn about…

I should also mention that there were FOURTEEN children in all for this excursion. Not all mine of course, I rounded up some other neighborhood moms to venture out with us! Good news is, there is PLENTY of room for spreading out yet not too much going on that you lose track of little ones.

As many times as we’ve been to this place, the children enjoy it every time. I highly recommend taking a trip here if you haven’t already and if you have been here, maybe a return trip is in order.

**Spring is a great time to visit. The baby animals are only here for a short stay but there are other animals that are here year round.
