Thank you for voting Happy’s Farm, Inc. the BEST Non-Profit Organization in Rowan County! We really appreciate your support. Please call us at 704-279-5268, 704-798-6800, or 704-202-0623 to see what this hidden gem has to offer you and your family. Whether you are needing child care, looking for a western birthday venue, or needing cotton candy and candy apples for any occasion, the farm has it all! A little western town hidden in the eastern part of Rowan County just waiting for you to call and make an appointment to see all the unique activities the farm has to offer our community! The farm is in the process of working on The Salute to Freedom Outpost at the farm which is an area that will have an 18 hole miniature golf course as well as several military exhibits to view in honor of all Veterans in our community. The farm also offers a very special program called “Discovering Yourself Through Barnyard Adventures.” This was established with the help of Bobby Wayne Roseman, Sr. He wanted youth to discover their talents and develop their inner pride. In Loving Memory of Bobby, there is a special place called “Bobby’s Pride” at the farm where youth are recognized that successfully complete the program. May God bless each and every one of you for taking the time to vote for us and recognizing all the hard work that goes into the farm each and every day.
