Kids and animals happily interact at Jasper Ridge Fun on the Farm Day
Jasper Ridge Farm held its annual fundraiser last Saturday afternoon, and it was great place to be if you were a kid who loves animals.
The Montgomery Coe Band provided the background music to a variety of acuities that included equestrian demonstrations.
The highlight was the visit with the farm animals, two different sessions for half-hour periods. There was a nip here and hoof on a foot there, but neither the children nor animals minded.
InMenlo contributing photographer Robb Most was there to capture some of the action.
Founded by Wendy Mattes in 2009, Jasper Ridge Farm programs are offered free of charge to children facing life threatening illness, those living with special needs, and for children or adults facing challenging family situations such as homelessness, neglect, or domestic violence. The non-profit organization also has programs for veterans, senior citizens, and for inmates.
