Tuscaloosa Barnyard HayrideFor the past 13 years, students from all over Tuscaloosa county and beyond have enjoyed a fall field trip to a quiet place out in the country.

The Tuscaloosa Barnyard started out with 4-5 stations including a boat ride, feeding animals, touching some chicken eggs, fleeing the llama, and riding a pony.

Feeding the animals is one of the favorites over the years. Goats, especially, seem to get a lot of love from our kids.

The parents love the picture booths.
