#36 of 118 in Outdoors in New Hampshire
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.

    The day my daughter and I went to the farm it was absolutely beautiful. Perfect weather to walk around and see all the different animals. She had a fabulous time on the various rides around the park. ...  more »

    I took my granddaughter for the first time and was extremely disappointed. The animals were kept in deplorable conditions, definitely inhumane. Not a lot of signage, and the map given to you makes kno...  more »

    Farm was over grown and run down. Cashier in "gift shop" was rude. The grass was so high we couldn't see some of the animals. There were a number of animals absent. And the rides were all late/off sch...  more »

    We had a lovely morning at the Farm--starting with a warm up in the shop with tasty samplings before checking in for our hayride. Two gorgeous Percherons took us out past sheep, goats and cows to the sugaring shack. We loved the explanation of how maple syrup is made and the q&a was lively and informative. We then had a delicious pancake and coffee/hot chocolate by a roaring fire. After the ride back we walked back to visit the animals--lovely. Everyone on the staff was so friendly and helpful--added up to a great experience.

    We went back in December and were extremely let down! Nothing is as advertised. All of the sights on the sleigh ride were severely dated, ugly, cheap, and felt like a slap in the face as they were stealing my money! There are next to no people working there and nothing to really do after we lost our money on the sleigh ride. The hot chocolate and snacks were small and expensive. I asked to talk to a manger and was told that no one was available. I asked for money back and they said I had to see a manger. I waited for 15 minutes and then left mad! I don't see a reason for anyone to go here even if it was 100% Free. I would love to consult with them on how to make it awesome!

    This was the first year that my family visited Charmingfare Farm for the Egg-Citing Egg Hunt. We had the best time! My two year old grandson loved it, but there were big smiles on the adult's faces the whole time as well. I highly recommend this event for all families. What wonderful memories! We are already looking forward to attending another event!

    With family spread throughout New England we wanted to find a convenient location to meet for a winter family activity. Charmingfare Farm worked wonderfully for us. Our group included 6 adults and 3 kids and we had decided upon the Sleigh Ride Social. Although our plans fell on one of the coldest weekends this winter and well before there was enough snow on the ground to accumulate to anything, we all had a great time. We arrived and bundled up with time to feed some of the animals. The horse drawn wagon pulled up and took our group to the bonfire, which was by far the highlight of the evening. We all enjoyed roasting marshmallows and hot chocolate. The bonfire omitted enough heat and fun to keep our group warm and happy, but the gentleman roasting hot dogs was also very attentive and assisted with anything we needed during our stay. We would certainly consider a return visit for this event or another.

    Wonderful time at the farm 2 year in a row for the Easter egg hunt. Perfect for my 3 year old boy. Love seeing/feeding the animals, taking a horse drawn carriage ride, and collecting eggs. Loving our spring trip here, will go again. Also offered on Groupon.
