Wagner Farm is our favorite place to visit on a breezy morning.  It is a working farm that also serves as a park.  There are no entry fees.  Henry loves to visit the horses, dairy cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, tractors, farm cats and vegetable gardens.  The interactive barn has a general store, a plastic cow for milking, etc.  There is also a little museum in the old farm house complete with the original 19th century furniture and an old lady dressed in a 19th century farm costume.  Last week we saw a calf being born!  Wagner has a farmer's market and family events all summer long.  You can also have birthday parties there.  It's a terrific place.
