White Fence Farm, that Lakewood hot spot for good 'ol Southern cooking and family entertainment, is closed until February 1 for its annual cleaning and to let the staff take vacations.
Open since 1973, White Fence is an always an adventure into agriculture with its kid-friendly atmosphere, petting zoo, gift shop and playground.
But its fried chicken fanatics -- and they are a loyal bunch -- will have to ease their cravings somewhere else for the next couple of weeks. Hopefully they left someone behind to take care of the animals.
