Saturday is jam packed with event. And here are the details for Breakfast with the babies (baby goats that is)!

Join us on Saturday, April 1, from 9:00am – 12 noon for our third “Breakfast with the Babies” event of the season. This open house event series will continue every Saturday through 4/29.

MEET THE BABY GOATS
Stop by the barn to meet the “kids”. We have 110+ baby goats born in March, with more on the way. Please note signs on the pens that specify which goats can be pet or not (as the newborns shouldn’t be pet by guests until they’re a little older). And don’t forget to step next door and visit with the does.

WARM UP WITH BREAKFAST
Step inside our dining room to enjoy some fresh breakfast on the farm. We’ll have savory and sweet breakfast options, delicious goats’ milk cocoa and fresh coffee. Cash and credit cards accpeted. Price: $4 – $7 per breakfast item.

SHOP LOCAL FARM GOODS
Show your support of local, sustainable farms by picking out a few items through our on-site store, The Real Stand. We’ll have cheese and gelatoes that are made by the Praire Fruits Farm team. We also feature products from local farms such as Bane Family that produces meats & eggs. T-shirts, sweatshirts and home goods available too.

GETTING HERE
Our address is: 4410 N Lincoln Ave, Champaign, IL 61822
We recommend taking N. Market Street to Olympian Drive towards Lincoln Ave. This section of Olympian Drive just opened (not updated on Google Maps yet). See our site for directions: http://www.prairiefruits.com/directions
NOTE: There is construction taking place on Lincoln Ave south of our farm that has resulted in road closures.

PARKING
We have about 30 parking spaces on our farm. We also have an overflow lot that can hold an additional 60+ cars. A staffer will be on hand helping guests find parking spots. Please consider carpooling and coming early, as parking is limited.

OUR PET POLICY
We ask that our guests leave their pets at home. As our farm is a working farm, outside dogs or pets will disrupt our herd and working dogs. Outside pets are not welcome.
