The Strong Family Farm in Vernon is hosting a family-friendly tradition this weekend, the Chicken Run!
Although Sunday's event does include chickens, it's much more than that. It's a 5K race, or 2 mile walk or 1/4 mile children's race, so there's something for everyone and every skill level! You can register ahead of time here or on Sunday morning.
Here's where the chickens come in. Each spring, the farm gets a new batch of baby chickens to take care of until the Fall. The chicks will be arriving on Sunday in conjunction with the Chicken Run. Check out the Adopt a Chicken program they offer for more information. The 4H Club is also bringing rabbits for the kids to pet. Check out this website for the farm's address, parking information and a map of the course.
