Families Invited to Experience Life on the Farm at Frying Pan Park

Milking cows. Feeding the livestock.

It’s all part of a day’s work for a farmer. Beginning in April at Frying Pan Farm Park (2709 W. Ox Road, Herndon), local families are invited to find out what it’s like.

The Junior Farmer Family Fun program will take place at the park every other Thursday beginning April 6. Open to ages 2 and up, the program will give participants the chance to get up close and personal with farm life by helping with a variety of the chores.

Topics and activities will vary throughout the six weeks of the program, which will go from 4 to 5 p.m. each day. Cost to participate is $7 per person, per week. All children must be accompanied by a registered adult.

Frying Pan Farm Park preserves and interprets a farm of the 1920s-1950s, including the agricultural process, rural community life and landscape. Its goal is to provide for the educational, cultural and recreational enrichment of citizens and visitors of Fairfax County.

For more information about Frying Pan Farm Park, the program or other activities that are available, call 703-437-9101 or visit its website.
