Tanglewood Farm

Step back in time to the 1800’s and visit the Wild West Town with more than 150 Miniature Farm Animals. Take a walking tour and visit a real pioneer village that includes a Bank, a Saloon, a Jail and a Trading Post with snacks and souvenirs. As groups tour the Town, they’ll be able to meet the miniature cows, sheep, horses, and donkeys. Behind the Wild West Town, explore the Mine Shaft where the Miniature Goats live. Make sure to stop by the School House where you’ll find the Miniature Potbellied Pigs waiting for a belly rub. Finally, venture to the Livery Stable where students and scouts can meet the riding ponies.

Farms Fun Facts

The average American may eat 125 pounds of potatoes each year but corn is actually America's number one field crop, providing ingredients for cereals, peanut butter, snack foods and soft drinks. Have your campers note the various ingredients in the food they eat.

The average person eats 68 quarts of popcorn a year alone! Have each camper keep a record of how much popcorn they eat during the camp season, or the total amount that their camp consumes.

Use a trip to an agricultural farm to find out about the benefits of eating local. Ask the farm staff to discuss the process from seed to market.
