Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today’s Groupon to Oak Hollow Farm in Fairhope. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get a one-hour horseback ride (up to a $40 value). Children younger than age 6 may ride at the same time as parents.
- For $12, you get one skeet-shooting session (a $25 value), which includes:
- Gun rental
- 25 shells
- Skeets and thrower<p>
Boasting 300 acres of wooded trails, lush pastures, a serene pond, and babbling creeks, Oak Hollow Farm offers an idyllic locale for pursuing laid-back pastimes such as horseback riding, skeet shooting, hunting, and fishing. Guests can hop atop a trusty steed and explore the scenic landscape on a guided trail ride. A hayride delivers budding broncobusters to the barn and has them smelling like dinner as they meet and greet four-hoofed friends. Riders will then enjoy an hour of trotting, cantering, and telepathic bantering mounted atop a mount, ambling along tree-lined trails and creek banks.
To exact revenge on pesky clay pigeons, patrons can partake in a round of skeet shooting. As the wingless birds soar through the sky, guests take aim, firing off 25 shots during each session, equipped with the necessary gun, skeet, and thrower. Oak Hollow Farms offers skeet shooting and horseback riding Monday through Saturday; call ahead to schedule an appointment.
