Reason #23 to love Living in Olympia: Lattin’s Country Cider Mill & Farm

Lattin's Country Cider Mill and FarmAs a parent of a 2 year old, I find myself constantly seeking new ways to keep my daughter active and entertained. This is not always an easy task, as it seems nearly everything in this world costs money anymore. We can end up spending a ton of money on things that do nothing educational for our children and nothing positive for our local community. For those seeking an alternative to that pattern, one great local option is Lattin’s Country Cider Mill & Farm.

Kids are drawn to Lattin’s and they love to feed the many animals available for viewing. Bags of food for the kids to share with the animals are available for 60 cents each so you can literally keep the kids entertained and engaged for no more than pocket change. Pigs, cows, chickens, goats, peacocks, rabbits, turkeys, and more are all easily accessible. Fair warning though, if you aren’t paying attention the goats may reach their heads out and snag the bag of food right out of your hands!

I took my daughter out to Lattin’s yesterday afternoon (we are quickly becoming regulars out there!) and were lucky enough to see lots of baby animals. We also caught the peacock with its feathers up on full display! The goats were exceptionally hungry and got into several little head-butting battles over who should have the best spot along the fence. And the award for grumpiest looking animal went to the HUGE turkey who is going to make several large families very happy come Thanksgiving.

In addition to the great farm animal experience, make sure you try some of their award winning apple cider and apple fritters! In the farm market you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables, honey, jams, frozen pies, and a variety of other tasty goodies. Come out to Lattin’s Country Cider Mill & Farm anytime to enjoy the farm experience or join them at one of their seasonal events.

Here is a little montage from our visit to the farm yesterday. Enjoy!

    Reason # 33. Gorgeous views free from Mike Duffy’s yard. Any day, rain or shine, cloudy or snowy, cold or hot, just sit on the park bench and gaze on an urban view that seems pastoral, changing foliage, shadows, a dome, old and new buildings and an occasional ship. Just sit free and enjoy serenity. No overnight camping.

      Sounds like as good a reason as any, Mike! Is this an open invite? 😉
