Baby Animal Events in Utah

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 2024).

This is the Place Baby Animal Celebration

This is the Place Baby animal celebration always includes chicks!

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 2024, they are holding a Baby Animal Celebration on April 13. The baby animals will be there all spring, but there will be extra activities available on this date, including the candy cannon. April 1 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. There are three separate weekend events from March 28-April 6. Check their website for dates, 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. Things are changing a little bit with the Farm, so we are planning to visit this spring. There is now a petting zoo in Ricochet Canyon at Gardner Village that offers pony rides and feeding the animals. We aren’t sure if the Farm still has separate activities or not, but will update as soon as we visit. They are doing $2 Tuesdays in March and April this year. 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

Our kids love walking around with the animals.

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 is March 30-May 11, 2024.

Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point

Cutest baby horse ever!

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, usually in May. There are no dates for 2024 yet. There will definitely be plenty of baby animals to see any time you visit Farm Country.

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. 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 5-May 11. 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 in April, they have baby animal days (April 26 & 27, 2024). 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

Baby animals are the cutest!

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 22 and 23, 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.

C & S Family Farms Baby Animal

Baby guinea pigs at C&S Family Farms.

We are excited to add this new local farm to our Baby Animals list. They are hosting people to enjoy the baby animals on April 13, 26, and May 4. We loved the personalized experience we had when visiting C & S Family Farms, and the animals were a lot of fun, too. Grab tickets here.

Clark Historic Farm Barnyard Babies

This small historic farm is hosting their Banyard Babies on May 3 & 4. 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 12-13, and April 19-20).
