For those who live in, know of, or simply hear the word “Southern California”, the idea that this particularly sunny region is known for its rising temperatures, glorious beaches, and picturesque shorelines is rarely overlooked. Contrastingly, the city of Santa Clarita, a town located in the heart of Southern California, contains the well-known Gilchrist Farm: a family-owned ranch presenting itself to be the perfect place for local Santa Clarita citizens to enjoy a kid-friendly, hospitable, authentic, country-side environment immensely different from the typical sandy shorelines that Southern California brings.
Family Friendly Activities
Here at Gilchrist Farm, a warm and homely ranch-like setting offers a variety of activities for local families to partake in, such as learning how to milk all different types of animals, rounding up a brood of hens, gathering fresh eggs, taking horseback riding lessons from high-quality trainers and professionals, or simply enjoying the aroma of country-side greenery, crops, and beautiful flower gardens as families take a stroll through Gilchrist Farm.
Not only does Gilchrist allow its visitors to interact with its plethora of friendly animals, but the farm also holds wedding ceremonies, birthday parties, showers, meetings, anniversaries, field trips, corporate events, special events, and countless other celebrations. According to their webpage, Gilchrist Farm entertains children and their families every day with activities such as “horseback riding, petting goats & pot bellied pigs in your own private petting zoo, feeding ducks, peacocks, turkeys and chickens, playing country fair style games and just having fun outside!” These lively, boisterous activities never fail to put a smile on a child’s face. Additionally, Gilchrist provides a country store both online and in person where customers can bring the farm home with them!
Gilchrist Farms strives to create an enjoyable, warm, and comfortable country-side atmosphere in the city of Santa Clarita for local families to make unforgettable memories, adapt to fresh, unique outdoor environments, and to experience what it’s like to spend a day with loved ones at the farm. As the ranch provides informational classes, exciting field trips, eventful scouting events, and countless other outdoor adventures, the local community is rarely unsatisfied with the efforts of Gilchrist and its welcoming arms.
