The Kids Farm is Here to Stay

The Kid’s Farm, a recreation of a touch-and-see interactive farm that remains one of the most popular family attractions at the National Zoo, is off the endangered list.

The Zoo had announced earlier that there were plans to close the Kids’ Farm due to budget cuts but after an outburst of support for Kid’s Farm by local FONZ members and families all over the city, the Zoo found a sponsor that saved the date.

A major $1.4 million gift from State Farm Insurance will keep the family friendly attraction with its barn, grazing area, sheep, goats, chickens, cows and a mule open for visitors.
