I love free outing ideas when you are looking to get out, but don’t want to spend money. Upon a recent (and miserably hot) trip to the OC Swap meet, we ventured into the Centennial Farm to look at the animals adjacent to the entrance. For some reason, I thought the animals were only on display during the OC Fair, but upon asking an older, surly volunteer if they were open all the time, he asked, “How LONG have you lived here??” I guess I was supposed to know the answer!
Centennial Farm is a 4-acre working farm at the OC Fair & Event Center. The Farm is home to fruit and vegetable gardens, livestock, and Millennium Barn. Kids and adults can view pigs, peacocks, cows, honey bees and more while strolling though gardens of lush vegetation. Open most afternoons and on the weekends. Check the website for hours. Parking and admission is free!
