Historic Wagner Farm
Down on the farm is where Hyde Park JCC will be going.  Hyde Park will travel to Wagner farm which is 18.6 acres and is one of the last working dairy farms in Cook County.  The farm provides a unique opportunity for families to learn about farming heritage and experience firsthand “the way things used to be.”  Kids will get to meet and interact with animals and take part in various first hand activities such as grinding corn to feed our chickens and pumping water for the cows.  At the end of the visit, kids will get a chance to make and sample some homemade butter. Bring a lunch.
