Weekend Escape: Adventure Farm at Timberland Heights, San Mateo

Go back to nature!

 

(SPOT.ph) If your kid, niece, nephew, or inaanak thinks that a chicken naturally looks like that dressed one from the supermarket or that vegetables grow in the produce section, take them to Adventure Farm in Timberland Heights, San Mateo.

 

Located next to the main gate of Timberland Heights, this six-hectare farm is the most fun place to teach kids (and adults) about nature. The farm is divided into several parts: the Chicken Chums, Veggie Valley, Fish Frenzy, Butterfly Buddies, and Tree Troop.

At Chicken Chums, anyone can go in and pet the chickens. Most kids tend to chase after them too! Poor birds!

 

 

If you’re one who doesn’t like these slimy creatures, Worm World will open your eyes to the wonders of worms. The experts will show you how they make fertilizers for the farm.
