About The Event

Enjoy summer at the lake! Join us for our first  Barnyard & Beer + Yoga!  It's like a petting zoo, but better!  Enjoy a cold one & do yoga (or not) with the barnyard!  This event is all ages and price includes a drink.

What animals will be in attendance?

You'll get to do yoga with goats, alpaca and a mini horse or two, and MAYBE a few chicks, baby calf, and piglets, depending on when they're born this spring.  (Know where the phrase a bull in a china shop comes from?? Big calves and pigs are NO fun at yoga, trust us!)   

Session #1 11am- All ages

Depending on the age of our youngest guests, some animals may be moved or separated in the first session while we do yoga to make sure it's safe for everyone, but ALL ages will get to interact with each animal if they choose.  Alcohol will be allowed for the 21+ guests at this session.

Session #2 - 12pm - Adults

This class will have ALL the animals present, so it's best if smaller kids aren't in the class!  A drink is included for our 21+ guests. If you have questions about which session to attend, just contact us!

First Responder/Military Discount Ticket

At Willow City Farm, we know first-hand the sacrifices the family of a first responder and/or veteran makes, so we're offering a $5 discount on all tickets for firefighters, police, EMTs, veterans and their spouses!  This year we've added nurses, too!  Use discount code FRONTLINE to receive your discount, and be sure to list the qualifying agency or branch when you register.  

What is Barnyard + Beer & Yoga like?

Once you check-in at the Firefighter's Club, it's time to grab a drink.  After you get your cocktail (if you're over 21) we'll head outside.  You'll set up your mats or towels and get to meet the critters.  Yep, you can bring your drinks into the yoga area!  You will be given cups of  treats to help persuade the critters to come to you.  There will be some who will be on top of you, and some who'd rather watch you from afar or just eat out of your hand.  You can be as involved (or not) as you'd like. We can also strategically place the right goats on top of you for just the right selfie.

Some people just like to sit and hang with the animals, and some love to do full-on yoga.  Either way, this class is just for you.

This is a VERY informal! You are welcome to bring your yoga mat, or a beach towel will be just fine, too.  If you are no longer able to attend, you may transfer your ticket to a friend.  Just give us a heads up!

The bar at the Firefighter's Postal Lake Club will be open, so have your significant other join and enjoy some time at the lake!  You can even come by boat - there's plenty of places to dock.

Each adult ticket includes an alcoholoic beverage, and more will be available for purchase.
