Winter at Frying Pan Farm Park

Have you ever been to Frying Pan Farm Park?  It’s in Fairfax County, Virginia.  It’s free, convenient, and kids love it!

If you read my blog or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, then you already know that I’m a HUGE fan of the Park.

Despite the chilly weather conditions, I couldn’t handle one more day of being stuck inside – so I dressed Emily in her snow suit and we headed to the farm.  

It was pretty chilly. 

Besides the farmhands, we were the only ones there. I guess no one else wanted to venture out in the frigid temperatures to visit with farm animals. 

Below are a few pictures from our winter trip to the farm.

We visited Meg, the Dorset Ewe, and her spunky triplets! Meg had two rams and one ewe on February 10, 2015. Aren't they adorable?

We also saw Goldie, the newest Jersey Cow. Goldie was born on February 2, 2015, weighing 71 pounds. Her parents, Anastasia and Ferdinand, and grandmother, Dandy, are ecstatic!  Goldie was named in honor of the fish celebrity in NatGeo Wild's Fish Bowl II. 

We visited animals inside of the barn. We also checked out the enclosures and bumped into the handsome peacock. 

We enjoyed being the only visitors at the farm -- and hope the animals enjoyed seeing us!

  1. Looks like a great place to visit!! I never think of Virginia having snow like that, either!

  2. It's weird because we went to the zoo today. Sure, it's a much warmer day (5'c) but still ... there were only a handful of people there. I think it's important to still get out and get in touch with nature in the winter. Otherwise it can feel like one is losing touch with the world.

  3. I would love to have a farm to visit like this. I need to search around here in Denver and see if one exists. :) I love sweet farm animals.

  4. Oh what fun!!! I had a farm like this near me when I was a girl, and I adored it. We need to visit the next time we're up in DC area!
