Daytrip to Ray of Light Farm Animal Rescue | Fun Things to do with Kids | East Haddam Connecticut

The Ray of Light Farm, a Horse and Donkey Rescue Farm in East Haddam, Connecticut, is a fun and educational place to visit with kids and grandkids.

Ray of Light Farm - Animal Rescue

While babysitting the grandkids one summer morning I thought it would be fun for them to visit the farm.

The kids said they'd been there before for an Easter Egg Hunt, and my youngest daughter and I had been there last fall to take her two littles.

Farm Animals and Party Events

We were able to tour the farm at our own pace.  I like to mention to the kids that the animals are rescue, and this is their new home.  My grandkids were encouraged to make a donation in the donation box to help house and feed the animals.

We saw horses, donkeys, chickens, pheasants, llamas, and goats.  Last time there was a turtle and turkey there.

This time there was a pre-school group visiting, and we tagged on the end and were able to help feed the guinea pigs lettuce, which the grandkids enjoyed doing.

The farm also has a party room and sponsors events.  The kids can tour the stables, and wagon and pony rides are offered.
