It’s Covid-Summer, and that means everything is just a little different, but one of the perks is great venues that were closed during the Spring are now open for Summer, like Yesterland Farm! Located out in Canton in East Texas, there’s plenty of fresh air and sunshine, and a great time for everyone! Check out my Mommy Tips before you go!
Know Before You Go
SAVE $$$ and buy tickets online!
Tickets are only needed for rides! You can purchase food for the animals, and visit the complimentary Peach Wagon!
Wagons and strollers are allowed.
They have plenty of hand washing stations and hand sanitizer!
The do sell food and concessions, but you can bring outside food for a picnic, too!
You are absolutely going to want to be photo ready for this cute farm, with so many amazing photo ops for the kids!
If it looks like no one is at the farm, that’s because there was hardly anyone there when we visited, making social distancing very easy!
Boys and tractors!
They have absolutely the cutest petting zoo I have ever seen! Gotel 6 for the goats, and there are llamas, chickens, sheep, kangaroos, lemurs and much more!
While not an orchard, they have already picked peaches you can purchase in the General Store.
They also sell peach ice cream, a treat for me!
The General Store has cute gifts and souvenirs, too!
The kids love the rides, like Santa’s Runaway Sleigh!
Yesterland Farm is a Christmas Tree farm, and you can see the Christmas trees as you walk to the rides! During the holidays, you can come out to cut your own tree, and they are also open in the Fall for their big Pumpkin Patch!
But the animals were our favorites!
Gotel 6 is a cute little Goat Hotel! The goats will stick their heads out for food, but there is plenty of room back behind them for when no one is feeding!
I love this little girl!
The llamas weren’t wearing pajamas, but we still loved them!
Where’s your mama, llama llama?
Goat love! This is the sheep enclosure, but this little goat was confused, or hungry! We came in the afternoon, and the animals weren’t quite as hungry as they would be in the morning. In fact, when we first arrived, some with having their afternoon siestas, but closer to dinner they really perked up!
New baby chicks were so fluffy, and fun to feed! They gave you little food sticks for feeding the birds, and they have a parakeet aviary, but the parakeets were all full by the time we made it over there.
Meet my new best friend! I love this little camel. I love all camels, but this one was adorable. Right next to the horses, I could have stayed here all day. But somebody has to watch my kid, right?
I was taking pictures long after my son was done posing for them!
Who knew real games were as much fun as video games?
We visited with friends, and when I tried to get my friend’s 6 year old to sit in the chair, he said he wasn’t a granny!
You can bring your own water bottles, or purchase there at $2 a bottle, but remind the kids while they’re running around to be sure and drink some water or it kinda ruins the fun!
I’d bring my own water in a cooler, and save my money for their fresh squeezed lemonade! It’s amazing and so, so sweet!
Seriously, how cute is this!
Don’t you know the wild rabbits are mad when they realize these aren’t for eating!
All the boys had such a good time! Don’t forget to bring some sunscreen!
I meant to buy a watermelon for dinner, and forgot! Don’t wait until the last minute! The watermelon and peaches will be fine in your car.
