We visited the Avila Valley Barn yesterday while we were on our way back from our hike at Cave Landing and Pirate's Cove. It is very closeby! When we got there, parking was already almost full and it was about 12:30PM on a Sunday. The weather is getting better over here. We've had some rain for the first three months of 2019. 

The best part about Avila Valley Barn is that it's free to visit the farm animals here! There are dozens and dozens of goats! There are also chickens, ponies, cows, sheep and other animals! You can buy some food to feed the goats and this made it a very wonderful experience for the kids. 

We also took advantage of their pony ride for $6 for the kids. It's a short ride but my 2 year old thoroughly enjoyed every second of it! 

If you're hungry, you can also buy some bbq like a tri-tip sandwich, hot dog, etc. I was curious after I have bought my tri-tip sandwich if the chips and drink were supposed to come with it, because I didn't grab them. It wasn't clearly stated on the menu. My tri-tip sandwich was $10. 

There are also a lot of baked goods and fresh produce inside of the market. The line to buy can get really long unexpectedly and it could be 30 minutes later that there's no one in line at all. It's like they come in waves. Try some free produce samples if they have them! They are located next to the goat food. 

This place is so kid-friendly and fun. We can't wait to come back again. Address of Avila Valley Barn: 560 Avila Beach Dr, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405
