“So it is a petting experience… the people can come in and touch all the animals, but we like to try to let them leave with learning something new about them too.. that’s our big thing,” said Karen Mandy, owner of The Learning Barn.
A Learning & Petting experience to remember!
This event will be inside due to the cold weather – thank you!
