        Year-Round Tours

        Kids on the Farm Group Tour
        Explore our historic dairy farm with hands-on fun as you meet our goats, cows, chickens, and ponies. Learn interesting animal facts and local history as you travel back in time to when Bellevue was mostly farm land and forest. Then, go into the animal barn to see where the animals sleep at night and work on barn "chores" with child-sized pails and rakes.

        Fuzzy Farm Friends Group Tour
        Have you ever wondered where yarn and wool sweaters come from? How does a sheep give us a pair of warm wool socks? Meet the Kelsey Creek Farm sheep, watch a farmer spin wool into yarn, and practice the skill of carding wool all while learning about sheep and fiber processing. Children will create a fuzzy sheep craft to take home.

        Pioneers on the Farm Group Tour
        Imagine life in the 1880s in our authentic log cabin. Children meet a pony and participate in activity stations, learning to grind wheat and coffee, churn butter, hammer nails, pump water, and engage in more living history skills. Storytelling about pioneer life with Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books helps children compare their lives based on electricity and modern conveniences with the lives of Laura and Mary.
