Featured Attraction: Meet the Animals at 'Far Enough Farm'
The newest member of the Centreville family and a Centre Island staple for 50 years, Far Enough Farm invites children to meet the amazing animals that inhabit the farm. The cast of characters includes bunnies, ducks, chickens, goats, sheep, Billy the ram, Charlotte the pig, horses Duchess and Boot, mother-daughter mini-horse duo Blueberry Muffin and Cecelia, and a trio of donkeys that includes mom, dad and child. Most recently, a pair of mini ponies has joined the Far Enough Farm family, including an eleven-month-old baby and his six-year-old friend who is expecting a new arrival in late May. The Farm is also home to a host of feathered friends of all sizes, like peacocks, guinea fowl, geese, emus, and an adorable cluster of fluffy Silkie Chickens.
