New Arrivals at Simmons Farm

There are plenty of cuddly signs of spring at Simmons Farm in Middletown, as visitors have welcomed nearly 50 baby goats and 25 baby chicks over the past few weeks. The public is invited to play with the farm babies at their “Pet, Play and Cuddle” events, held every Sunday from 2 until 5 p.m., including Easter Sunday. “The event has been really popular,” said Karla Simmons. “Everyone has had a really good time.” Children may also visit the outside petting zoo, which features adult goats, dairy cows, a pony, a donkey and a pot-bellied pig named Gus. Simmons is a 120-acre family farm that specializes in organically grown, traditional and heirloom produce for its farm stand and farmers markets. Petting zoo hours are Monday and Friday from 3 - 6 p.m. or Sundays from noon until 5 p.m. (Photo by Chris Parish)
