Green Meadows Farm & Petting Zoo

Thinking of where to go for a family trip this weekend? Try Green Meadows Farm in Hazlet, NJ, a short drive from Jersey City, Hoboken, and NYC. Why should you go there? – They have a petting zoo, your kids will have a blast! Don’t miss out though – spring season started on May 4th and ends on June 4th 2012. The farm is closed during the summer and re-opens for a month on September 28th.

{things to do}

Green Meadows Farm features hundreds of animals and you can put your hands on them – your kids will love petting them. They will learn about pigs, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, donkeys, horses, mules, rabbits, alpacas, llamas and more. They can even squeeze milk from a cow and enjoy a tractor-drawn hayride – beat that, Disney Channel! Children’s playground is just outside the entry gate and you can also purchase small snacks, beverages and souvenirs. There’s a nice picnic area where you can relax on the grass among the trees, far away from the concrete structures, traffic noise and garbage smell.

We visited Green Meadows Farm in Hazlet, NJ, last October and had lots of fun. We even picked some pumpkins but missed on the hayride. We are planning on going back this month. Kamar is bigger now and will love riding behind a tractor. And he will go crazy when he sees all the duckies. Quack quack.
