Today we hosted a small field trip for a group of disabled adults from Aurora, Colorado. On their visit they enjoyed feeding the ducks and fish, shucking corn, and were able to feed the goats and donkeys with the shucks! Several of our guests were able to hold a freshly laid (warm) chicken egg and pet the animals.
One of their favorite things about coming to the farm is “the quiet”! “It’s so relaxing when we come to the farm. We don’t have to fight noise or traffic and our group enjoys a day to relax.” said James Wallis who put the group together for the field trip.
Today we are planting our pumpkin patch! This is a very exciting time of year for us as we get to see the farm transform from brown open space to lush fields of green. It all begins with Grant May behind the wheel of an old John Deere tractor, plowing the way for a tiny seed . You’ll see in these pictures a larger tractor with bins which contain the seed, dropping them in to the ground in nice straight lines 4 rows at a time. Our first year we planted our pumpkin seeds by hand… We will continue to update you on the growth of the pumpkins so you can see the patch grow. These pumpkins should be ready 100 days from now.
We are planting 10 varieties of pumpkins including:
Magic Lantern, Aladdin, Wee -B- Little, Big Doris, Atlantic Giant, Polar Bear, Jack-O-Lantern, Red Warty Things, Magic Wand and Candy Corn. The Candy corn pumpkins will be used for our pumpkin launcher this fall!

It’s springtime at May Farms! See this little guy lose a few pounds after a long winter of growing wool. Shearing a sheep in the springtime helps him stay cool through the summer and his wool can be used for clothing and blankets. He seems pretty relaxed while getting it shaved off – I bet it feels good!
Make sure to contact us about other opportunities for you or your family to come out and learn more about country living and life on the farm. It’s always educational and we’d love to have you visit!
Welcome to May Farms, destined to be Colorado’s best family experience! Located minutes east of Denver on Colorado’s high plains, our working farm is dedicated to establishing family traditions and creating experiences tailored to accommodate the character of your special event.
