This spring, get closer to Mother Nature by celebrating nature’s mothers and their babies!

Farm Babies is back at the Minnesota Zoo and this year the cuteness is abound in two different ways. The virtual celebration begins today – with online livestreams, games, and a delightful overload of photos, videos, and fun farm facts. From farmyard maternity and newborn galleries, to keeper talks, and even a live goat and sheep barn webcam, frolic through the farm from anywhere via your computer or phone.
Virtual Farm Babies content can be accessed online by clicking here.

Then beginning April 9, the Zoo’s Wells Fargo Family Farm will publicly open for the season and welcome guests to admire the newborns, and their mothers, in person. Experience the joy of little piglets, bouncy goat kids, curious chicks, a pair of mama llamas, and more. To visit the Zoo in person, online reservations are needed in advance. Reservations can be made at mnzoo.org.

While exploring the cuteness, either online or in person, keep an eye out for our “Forgotten Farm Babies.” Throughout the event, the Zoo will be working to showcase the importance of pollinators – such as butterflies and bees – and their connection to healthy ecosystems and productive food systems. After all, no farm would be complete without them!

Farm Babies runs through Sunday, May 16. Get your Farm Babies cuteness online beginning today and in person beginning Friday, April 9.

Dates: Apr 9 - May 16
