When most people look forward to empty nesting, they dream of traveling, sleeping in, and a little more freedom. The Newsom family had a different idea. After raising 8 children, all within less than 10 years of each other thanks to adoption, LeAnn and Scott Newsom moved to Hazel Green to start a farm. The Newsoms are still bringing more people to their home, but in a different way this time. Haven Farms is a hobby farm in Hazel Green where you can sign up for group tours or one of their summer camps.

What to Expect on Your Haven Farms Visit

There are two types of tours: regular and deluxe.

The regular tour is about an hour to an hour and a half while the deluxe tour is two to two and a half hours. When you have more time with a deluxe tour, you can bring lunch for the family and sit at the picnic tables after the tour. You can also take advantage of their play gym and sandbox while spending more time around the animals on the farm.

What to expect on the tour:

You’ll park at the end of the first long driveway, before the Haven Farms sign. Upon the start of each tour, everyone gets a small bucket to feed the animals. The buckets have food for the animals plus animal crackers and pretzels. It’s all for the animals, but if your child happens to sneak a bite, hopefully they grab a pretzel or animal cracker. You can feed the chickens, alpacas, sheep, pigs, goats, and donkeys. You have the option to feed the animals through the fence or walk around inside the fence with them.

Wilbur is the cuddliest pig who loves belly scratches and people. You can feed Cruz, the sheep, but his mother, Josie, might come up to say hi as well. Through the tours, you learn more about the animals like their eating habits, their nature, and what it’s like to take care of them. After a pretty walk around the fishing hole, you arrive at the Bunny Bungalow, where you can sit on the ground and hold or pet the bunnies.

Some highlights for our group were picking an egg, feeding the pigs, the Critter Express, and Naomi and Ruth: the inseparable donkeys.
