The Farm-in-the-Zoo gives Chicago kids a chance to experience a bit of the country in the city. Visitors can take part in seasonal gardening demonstrations, see cows, sheep, chickens, pigs and ponies, greet the goats in the goat contact yard and enjoy interactive learning stations in the Main Barn.

Farm-in-the-Zoo Highlights
The Main Barn is filled with interactive exhibits for guests of all ages. Eggsplore the Nest invites guests to experience “hatching out” of an oversized egg. The Farming & Weather station lets guests experience the rush of a tornado, the crackle of lightning and the rumble of thunder.

The Dairy Barn houses goats and cows, where visitors can learn about the milking process. At the heart of the Farm, the seasonal Edible Garden invites kids to experience hands-on lessons on the origins of food.
