Baby Chicks, Piglets & Bunnies…Oh My!


Don’t miss your chance to see farm animals at their cutest – as babies! Make plans to visit the Minnesota Zoo during April and check out the Wells Fargo Farm Babies exhibit. This adorable exhibit is included in your Minnesota Zoo admission and offers you the opportunity to see baby chicks and bunnies (in all their fluffy glory!), piglets, lambs, calves, and goat kids. There are even opportunities for animal interactions including a goat contact area and goat feedings (for a nominal fee).

Crazy cuteness aside, this exhibit is part of the larger Wells Fargo Family Farm, which gives you an inside look at a working farm. For most of us, the days of taking your children to visit grandma at the farm have passed. This is the perfect way for your family to see where the milk for your cereal really comes from. Hint: It’s not the grocery store.
