Why Old MacDonald's Farm in Humble will bring out the kid in you

HUMBLE, Texas (KTRK) -- Old Mac Donald's Farm is a must-stop in Humble. The 15-acre property is nestled right off FM 1960, just a short drive down from Highway 59.

It's a place where kids can get up close and personal with the animals. Kids can even take a train ride around the farm.



"That's one of the best parts about being close to Houston, you have a lot of people from the city that don't necessarily get to interact with animals on a day-to-day basis," said manager and owner Mitchell Wilkerson. "It's good for them to come out here and see the animals, and what they're about."

The farm was started by Wilkerson's father 28 years ago.

According to Wilkerson, his family used to visit Safari parks and wanted the opportunity to bring something with a more hands-on experience to the area.

Admission is $12.00. For more information, visit the farm's website.
