The Henry Miller Farm is more than an area at the Merced County Spring Fair - it's an unforgettable experience!
It takes over 40 volunteers to coordinate this 7,000 sq. ft. farm of fun. The all-volunteer team is led by Ag Educator, Kathy Rinkenberger and Ag Enthusiast, Kathleen Gilbert.
The young and young at heart can feel and touch real farm animals such as ducks, pigs, goats, donkeys, llamas, and their young. Visitors at the Henry Miller Farm can even milk a cow - an experience that many city dwellers cannot get elsewhere. Upon completion of the tricky task, the milkers are awarded a sticker to boast their accomplishment.
Cow Calving Area
One of the highlights of the Farm is the cow calving (cows giving birth) area. Last year there were 20 calves born on site! And, when a cow is not calving, a video is used to educate guests about the birthing process.
The Henry Miller Farm is decorated with a lot of authenticity, with a tribute to times past. The décor includes old-time wagons as well as antique farm equipment and milking machines.
Fair guests are invited to experience the Henry Miller Farm for a fun-filled learning experience with a hands-on twist!
