Fun on the Farm at Hill Ridge Farms!

We offer one of the Triangle's best educational and fun-filled destinations for church and family outings, picnics, school field trips, birthday parties, and more!

Be sure to check the Calendar to find out about special events happening throughout the year on the Farm, including our famous Fall Harvest and Pumpkin Festival!

Farm Animal Corral

Read our Safety Policy here!

Our Farm Animal Corral offers children and adults a safe, clean, fun opportunity for learning about real barnyard animals. The Farm Animal Corral is designed with double fencing to let children view and even feed live farm animals safely!

The Corral showcases an assortment of all the wonderful animals found on the farm, including: goats, sheep, chickens and Turkeys.

Coin-operated animal feed machines are located near the Corral if you would like to feed them a treat. (Please don't feed the animals your own bread or snacks - it's not good for them!)
