We had a great Holiday Season and thank all the visitors who came and bought Christmas trees from our farm. I also want to say a very special "THANK YOU" to Norman Cavey and Tom Ingham for all the great work they did to "light up" the Enchanted Forest attractions to get them ready for our "Illuminated Enchanted Forest Hayride." It was great fun to see all the Enchanted Forest attractions lighted up!!Also, a special thanks to Santa for visiting the farm so often this season. He delighted lots of children at the farm in December.
*********New at the farm**********
Look for our first Clark's Elioak Farm children's book.
Our favorite goat, Eli, invites you to read this story about "Trusty the Tractor." Trusty pulls the hayride at Clark's Elioak Farm but dreams of doing the jobs that the bigger tractors do. One day he gets a chance to "save the day"--but is he too little to do the big tractor's job. Read along with Eli and see what happens on the farm.
"Trusty the Tractor" can be purchased at our store at the farm and also by mail. Click HERE for a Order Form for the book or call 410-730-0664 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase the book.

While you are waiting for the petting farm to open up on April 1st, you can still purchase our BEEF and LAMB. Just call the farm at 410-730-0664 to purchase and pick up your meat at the farm. We have our wonderful Clark's Never Sell The Land Farm Pasture-Raised Beef. We have been raising cattle for many years, but this is the first time we are offering our grass-fed beef to our customers.

And take home some Bowling Green Farm Cheese. Local Howard County farmers from Bowling Green Farm are offering a variety of cheeses and spreads from their Holstein herd.

The Clark family has been farming in Howard County since 1797. Please come and visit our PETTING FARM and see a wide variety of animals--goats, sheep, donkeys, pigs, cows, horses, ponies, turkeys, ducks, chickens, bunnies, and an emu. You can feed the animals and visit our Barnyard area where you can touch and pet them. We offer hay rides through our farm fields and a number of play areas for the children. Pony rides are available all day, every day that we are open.
Clark's Elioak Farm is pleased to announce that a very happy fairy tale has brought many of the figures from the ENCHANTED FOREST back to life at our farm. Come see the many treasures we have saved from the Enchanted Forest and brought back to life among the animals and pasture fields of our petting farm.
Our newest attraction is the ENCHANTED FOREST MAZE. Follow the twists and turns through our forest of pine trees and discover more Enchanted Forest figures along the way. Find Little Red Riding Hood, Little Boy Blue, Hansel and Gretel, and the Tortoise and the Hare. Great fun for the whole family!!
Enhance your visit in the Enchanted Forest Maze by purchasing a MAZE GUIDE and ACTIVITY BOOK before you enter the Maze. There are questions in the MAZE GUIDE that can only be answered by going through the Maze. Then you can take the GUIDE home for hours of fun coloring, dot-to-dot, and drawing.
