Old time wagon and draft farm testimonials
 


Thank you for allowing our summer camp to come out and visit your farm. The children and staff really enjoyed the program, especially the horses (john) and the wagon ride. The trip was very educational and we appreciate the experience. We recommend other programs to visit the farm.

I am writing to tell you what a wonderful time our children had at your farm on August 5th of this year. The wagon you have on display in our museum was very interesting for the children as were all the various wagon models. As you know, being allowed to pet the draft horse was a huge hit with the children.

Thank you for a fantastic wagon ride and for the wooden toy wagon that each child got to take home. A field trip to the Old Time Wagon & Draft Farm is well worth it.

The children in our summer camp program attended a field trip to Old Time Wagon & Draft Farm this past summer. They really enjoyed touring the farm and seeing the huge horses as they called them. They also learned how farming was done in the past and how it has changed over the years. The staff was very friendly and patient with our children.

We recommend this field trip to families as well as school groups.

This letter is to recommend Old Time Wagon and Draft Farm. The farm offers scenery, animals, and the history that goes along with it. Jackson Parrish and partner do an excellent job with the children and explaining the antique artifacts.

Our children had a great time and I am looking forward to taking them back again this summer!

Thank you so much for welcoming our YMCA group to your farm on November 21st. I wish we had more time to spend out there, but the kids had a really good time. We will have to come back soon!! Thank you for your hospitality and we hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!

This letter is in reference to Old Time Wagon & Draft Farm Inc.. My summer day camp visited the farm during the summer of 2001. The farm proved to be very educational and the kids enjoyed the visit! The farm went through the history of wagons and draft farms and showed the kids all of the animals involved.

I feel that Old Time Wagon is an excellent educational tool for the younger generations to learn about farming methods from a bygone era. This would be an excellent field trip for day camps and schools.

This past summer Gingerbread Learning Center had a summer camp about the "Wild Wild West". We sent several groups of children to Jackson Parrish's Old Time Wagon Farm for children o experience life in the "old west". Jackson introduced the children to many primitive farm tools in his collection. He showed and explained the many breeds of horses he boards. He took the children around the farm on a horse and carriage. The children visited and were able to pet the large array of farm animals. This field trip was very educational. Jackson and Marty spend lots of time with the children explaining and answering their questions. The children really enjoyed the trip back in time. We will be going back. Great field trip!!

Thank you for allowing us to visit your farm. The children had a wonderful time and learned many new things! I especially liked how you were able to present the history of transportation in a fun, easy to understand way.
I would highly recommend that anyone caring for children bring them to your farm. Your facility was beautifully kept and extremely safe! The children loved participating in the discussions and playing with the animals!
We look forward to returning in the spring! Thanks again.

Thank you so much for allowing Triangle Baptist Church to invade your privacy last Sunday.
The children and adults really had a nice "family" day. It felt very cozy on your property. Thanks again. God bless!
