Home to both classic barnyard creatures and some of the continent's most famous wild residents, Charmingfare Farm combines kid-friendly outdoor activities with a traditional zoo. Visit the farm and get to know bears, Bactrian camels, foxes, owls, goats, oxen, and more as you explore the grounds. Hop aboard a horse-drawn carriage, where you can both see the power of these working animals and get a comprehensive tour of the other exhibits. For something even more exotic, you can join a hike accompanied by one of the complex's hardy llamas. Be sure to check the farm's website for special offers and web-only discounts.

We visited Charmingfare Farm for the first time as a family for their Trick or Treat event. It was cold, dreary and raining but we bundled up and made the best of the weather and we are SO GLAD WE DID. Our young toddler loved the event. We were unsure of how he would handle any "spooky" decorations or characters but it was perfectly balanced and we had a lot of fun. There were also a lot more animals out throughout the farm than we expected and it made our day even better because our son is a huge animal lover. We had a great day, the event was fun and we will definitely be coming back again! The staff was courteous and friendly without being overbearing or smothering us and that was genuinely appreciated. Thank you!!!

My husband and I took our 2 year old to the Trick or Treat, it was our 1st time at the Farm....It was absolutely a fabulous time!! It was definitely worth the money. We initially drove past it and didnt realize how big the farm was. Our son had such a blast trick or treating and also on the hayride. Even the animals were so friendly, My husband and I were "acting" like little kids also!!!
I decided to add my own review of this place after finding out that they don't rate perticularly well. After reading the reviews others have left I could see many never visiting this place because of those reviews which I feel is wrong. I have gone to this farm many times over the past few years for just a visit or a special event and we have always had an amazing time. The farm is extremely easy to find your way around contrary to other reviews, though maybe to some that can't find their way out of a wet paper bag it's difficult. As most farms or zoo's it is a self guided tour however the pathways are marked well and are nicely maintained which having young kids and pushing a stroller makes life great. My kids love all the animals that they can pet especially the goat enclosure that you can freely go inside of. We also enjoy seeing the scarier animals like the mountain lion, bears, and wolf. I will say that seeing a lone wolf seems unnatural and hope they will add more in the future. I have seen their different rides and events grow over the last few years so if it's not quite what you were hoping for give it time and go back to see their improvements. I look forward to our next visit.
I have never written an online review, but I am so angered by treatment of "Charming" fare farm I feel compelled to tell my story. I purchased tickets to haunted harvest on couptopia weeks ago with the intention of going the weekend of opening. As it turned out, there were no bookings left for that weekend so I happily booked 10/21, talking the outing up to my child. I followed all directions for booking but did not receive a confirmation. Since it had been a few weeks since my booking, I could not recall the exact time slot of my booking and called the "farm" to confirm the time. I was told by part owner that there was no record of my booking and despite there still being available booking times for 10/21, he could not honor my ticket. He believed that I legitimately attempted to book but refused to believe "the computer" could make a mistake and in any case "the computer" dominates and he, as the owner, had no power to override it. He however invited me to purchase three more tickets. I strongly recommend that you do not spend your money at this not so charming entity.
We LOVE this place. It is a friendly New England type of atmosphere with wonderful people. The farm has so many options - visiting, lunch time on the picnic tables, fall and halloween options, and christmas time fun. We love coming here again and again!
