Charmingfare Farm, Candia

#31 of 99 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.

  • I've been here twice in 2017 - once in July to visit the Farm and again in early December for Santa's Big Party. I don't plan on going back because both visits this year weren't great. Starting with J...  more »
  • The seats on the wagon ride and train ride were full of snow and ice. Everyone got wet and cold sitting for the ride to and from seeing Santa. Santa was dirty. He had dirty work gloves and rags for cl...  more »

  • This place is a mixed bag. The farm animals are lots of fun for smaller kids, especially the goat area where they can feed and pet the goats. The tractor ride is included with the price of admission. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a picnic area, so you can bring a lunch or snacks with you. The only downside is the “zoo” section with wild animals. They have 2 black bears, a wolf, coyote, mountain lion, etc. These animals are kept in very small chain link enclosures, with very little stimulation. This part is pretty depressing.
  • Adorable. There's plenty of parking, you walk in and pay admission, or if you're a guest you can bring as many people for free as you please. Bags of animal feed are $3 a pop and you get to walk around and see all the different animals. There are pony rides for young children, and there is a goat pen that you can open and roam around and sit on rocks and play with and pet them. They are super lovable (just don't bring your feed bag with you!!!) There are cows and deer and black bears as well as a wolf and cougar and foxes and skunks. It's a super cool hands on farm that offer tractor rides and tours. Enjoy!
  • It was our first time going and my boys loved it. It's family oriented and kid friendly. Something nice to do on a afternoon.
  • John THANK YOU SO MUCH for going out of your way to make last minute arrangements for our daughter's Sweet 16!! Lillie was great and we appreciate her coming out JUST TO ACCOMMODATE US!! You guys are AMAZING!! Your kindness and this experience is one we will never forget. -Natalie, Lynn, Madison & Sadie
  • Not only on the staff very polite but when you drive up you don't even know what to expect from this farm at night walking around it or writing on horse-drawn carts or tractor drawing cards the sheer magnitude of this place makes me want to go back for the morning just from what I've seen it appears to be a really beautiful Slice of New Hampshire the staff were very polite and put on a very good not super scary show for young kids definitely a lot of thought and hard work went into this and you get to see some incredible animals in their Stables and Barnes wish I could have seen the Wolves and the Bears but understandably don't want them under lights after all they're not performing animals they are beautiful animals definitely would go back for winter they definitely put a lot of work into all that I saw thank you again happy Halloween
