As part of our passion for agricultural outreach and experience based education, we welcome you to Joyer Barnyard. We offer a family friendly environment, a typical visit takes about an hour. Joyer Barnyard is a highlight of many families that visit Waldoch Farm.
In the barnyard you can visit a wide range of farm animals including sheep, chickens, donkeys, alpaca, horses, peacocks, pygmy goats, pigs and other poultry.
New in 2018 for Fall Fun we started Pony Ride for $6 on the Pony-go-Round. Pony ride weekday schedule starting September 23rd through October 31st at 12:15, 3:15, and 5:15 weather permitting and on the weekends starting at 11 to about 6.
Joyer Barnyard is open during Waldoch Farm's retail hours. There is no admission charge just bring quarters for the animal feed dispensers. During events on the farm we sell cups of feed. Everyday the animal feed dispensers are available just 50 cents to feed the animals. This helps us feed the animals all year.
Sorry, no dogs allowed.
Reminder that washing hands prevents diseases, Please wash hands thoroughly after visiting the animals, don’t eat or drink in the barnyard, avoid putting your hands in your mouth, and remove pacifiers.
Minnesota Department of Health filmed a "Farms, Fairs, and Fun - Be sure to wash your hands" video on our farm. Watch the video and see the Joyer Barnyard and learn how to prevent diseases by washing your hands.
