So Much to See and Do!

Frying Pan Farm Park is one of the most popular parks in Northern Virginia! This working farm is in Herndon, Virginia, just four miles from Dulles International Airport.

Visit Frying Pan Farm Park and get up close and personal with live farm animals, including horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats and chickens. Learn what life was like on the farm almost 100 years ago; visit historic buildings and see antique equipment.

This 135-acre property is also home to a modern equestrian center, a preschool, and a mile-long nature trail. The farm is open 362 days per year and offers classes, programs and special events for all ages. Plus we have beautiful rental facilities for weddings, birthdays and meetings. We hope to see you soon!

Amazing thunderhead on our walk through the park last night. It was the calm before the storm!
My daughters and I found this little parakeet in the sheep barn around 5pm in Friday. I’ve never seen a parakeet at the farm. Has he escaped from someone’s home? Posting here in case someone is missing their parakeet.
Do you take volunteers?
A GREAT day to be at the park today.
An NYU student made a site that lets you put #BerniesMittens at any address :) (site for doing this is https://bernie-sits.herokuapp.com/ )

Thank you for putting on an incredible light show. Our family loved it!
Gordon's Grill will be happy to make cakes and pies for anyone who would like them for the holiday season. I know we haven't had the concerts, so no one has had any coconut cake this year. Now's your chance.
I'm hoping to visit Wednesday and see Rain. Are we allowed to get near the cows?
All of you Hokie Fans out there should help sponsor Hokie in this event! Frying Pan Park is a wonderful park in Northern Va that is a great place for kids and adults to see and interact with farm animals. My daughter and her husband are Hokies to the core and Noah and Kasey have always loved going there!
We went to Frying Pan Park yesterday and my son took a cute picture of one of the pigs napping :)
