Spring is the best time to find Baby Animals in Utah! We love visiting these local farms and venues that have animals we can pet and hold, especially the little babies. Here are some spots where we always enjoy baby animals in Utah. Many of these places hold special Baby Animal events in Utah. We have included all of those dates here (updated 2023).
This is the Place Baby Animal Celebration
One of our favorite stops any time of year in Utah is This is the Place Heritage Park. This state park does such an amazing job making Utah pioneer history come alive. And Spring is such a fun time to visit because the farm is full of baby animals. In 2023, they are holding a Baby Animal Celebration on April 8. The baby animals will be there all spring, but there will be extra activities available on this date, including the candy cannon. March 26 is the beginning of Spring Season at This is the Place, and we can’t wait.
American West Heritage Center Baby Animal Days
This is another stop full of history. American West Heritage Center is located in Wellsville in Cache County near Logan, Utah. This old farm has beautiful grounds to walk through and enjoy the farm, animals, beauty, and old farm buildings. Their baby animal days are extra fun because they bring in baby bear cubs to add to the farm animals. This event is a lot later in 2023 because of all of the snow and the bear days are separate from their Baby Animal Days. The dates for Baby Animals are over Memorial Day: May 26, 27, and 29. Check their website for hours and pricing.
Farm at Gardner Village
The Farm at Gardner Village is always full of fun farm animals, but just like the other farms mentioned, once Spring hits, baby animals start to show up. Tuesdays are $2 admission days through the end of April. They offer pony rides for an additional charge through the village. This cute little farm is also located at Gardner Village where you can find fairies in the springtime, too (arriving mid May).
Hee Haw Farms Spring Event
We love visiting Hee Haw Farms in the Spring or Fall. They always have tons of fun activities like huge slides, hay rides, duck races, and of course, a petting farm. Visiting in the Spring means baby animals all around Hee Haw Farms. We especially love this petting farm because you get to walk right into the large pen with them. The Spring Season at Hee Haw Farms runs from April 8-May 13, 2022.
Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point
Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point always has a lot of animals since it is a farm, but we love visiting in the Spring to see the baby animals. They have food available to purchase, so you can feed the goats and other animals on the farm. Farm Country throws a baby animal birthday party every Spring, and this year the dates are May 13 & 14. There will definitely be plenty of baby animals to see any time you visit Farm Country. For details on the Baby Animal Birthday Party, click here.
Cross E Ranch Baby Animals
Cross E Ranch hosted a fun drive thru baby animal event in 2020, so everyone could see the babies despite Covid. In 2022, everything is back for their regular festival where you can walk through their farm, enjoy the slides and zipline, and ride the barrel train. Make sure to enjoy some of their donuts. They are so yummy! This event runs from April 14-May 20. For pricing, visit the Cross E Ranch website.
Heber Valley Farm Baby Celebration
Heber Valley Artisan Cheese has a little farm in Midway Utah. We took a tour of the farm one day and loved learning about the different robots they are using to make farming more effective. It was so cool! We got to feed the calves, too. One weekend a year (April 28-29, 2023) they have baby animal days. Lots of local farmers bring different baby animals and they have hay rides and yard games. It sounds like a really fun event. For tickets and hours, visit their website.
Wheeler Historic Farm
Wheeler Farm is a historic working farm in Salt Lake County. This farm is full of animals, and beautiful nature areas. There are wagon rides and cow milkings, as well as a duck pond. In the Spring you will definitely find baby animals on the farm. We love exploring this farm, and they’re playing at the playground, too.
Staehli Farm in St. George
There is one farm in southern Utah that has been allowing visitors. Staehli Farm is located in Washington, Utah and has fun events in the Spring, Fall, and Winter. On March 25 and April 9, they will host their Spring into Easter Event filled fun spring activities and baby animals on the farm. We can’t wait to visit this farm when we head down south. Visit their website for tickets and info.
Clark Historic Farm Barnyard Babies
This small historic farm is hosting their Banyard Babies on April 29 and May 6. They will have lots of baby animals, as well as pony rides and “animal talks.” Check their website for hours and pricing.
Evans Acres Mini Farms
The Evans Acres Mini Farms is a new addition to our baby animal list. They are a small farm in Tremonton, which is at the very top of Utah. Evans Acres has lots of mini animals, so their babies will be extra cute. Their Mini Farm Spring Festival event is happening on two weekends (April 7-8, and April 14-15). For all the details, visit their website.
