Bluebird Gap Farm – Hampton, Virginia

blogIMG_0573

Bluebird Gap Farm is not what you think it is by name.  When we made the trip Bluebird Gap Farm, we were expecting a farm in the country…you know stereotypical stuff…rolling hills of crops, animals roaming, etc!  When I got off the freeway exit, I thought for sure the GPS took us to the wrong place.  We were in the middle of the city.  Houses on one side, businesses on the other…but we turned down the last street and here was Bluebird Gap Farm!

The kids loved walking from one animal area to another naming the animals, talking to them and taking pictures.  There were cows, goats, horses, llamas, pigs, deer, turtles, geese.  It is a city park with animals!  There are feed machines around so that you can give the animals a snack.  There are clean restrooms, a great playground and covered seating to get out of the sun.  And the best part?!?  It is FREE to visit!

    Cute — so it’s like an in-city petting zoo? Does the farm grow food or raise animals for food, or is it mostly for visitors? Can’t beat free!

    Sounds like my kind of place — a farm in the city, that is! Thanks for sharing!
