Have you ever heard a pig snore? Have you ever watched a goat sleep? Our Good Night Barn class lets kids experience the farm at the end of the day. We will turn the lights off as we finish caring for Critter Barn’s animals. As the sun goes down, we use flashlights to focus and see where to go. It's a one-of-a-kind-class! It’s fun to walk through the barn and see the animals settle down for the night... shhhhh!
