braehead farm

Braehead Farm is one of the few businesses that appeared as a 2015 family favorite in multiple categories. Our readers voted them a runner up in: Party Venue, Strawberry Patch, Pumpkin Patch and Outdoor Activity.

“We have so much fun at Braehead Farm! My grandsons love all the activities, the hay ride and the animals!”

Braehead Farm is the perfect combination of small marketplace, party venue and children’s learning center. The farm itself has cows, pigs, rabbits, free-range chickens (they are allowed just about everywhere) goats and horses. Kids are encouraged to ask questions and observe the animals. The farm also boasts plenty of open space for children to run around in, a huge sand pile with toys, a treehouse, playground, a hayloft, and swings. Inside the main building, you’ll find a small marketplace where you can purchase homemade pies, milk, ice cream, jellies, jams, honey, produce and more.

During spring, summer and fall, Braehead opens a section of the farm for pick-your-own produce. They also offer seasonal activities such as hayrides and a maze in the fall, and an Easter Egg hunt in the Spring. Braehead Farm does meet and greets with beloved holiday characters like Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Great Pumpkin.

Be sure to follow them on Facebook (www.facebook.com/BraeheadFarm) and check out their website, www.braeheadfarm.com for the latest information on events and activities, as well as information on booking parties and private events.

Now CHS is looking to find adoptive families in the area who need support before they hit a crisis point. “It doesn’t matter which agency they adopted from, or when that happened,” said Buckheit. “We want to offer a lifetime of support to adoptive families in the Fredericksburg area, especially those who haven’t been aware of our services in the past.”
