Charmingfare Farm, Candia

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.

First they show you how to mount up and handle the horse so that BEFORE you leave the arena your comfortable with what your doing! This was very important to me a first time rider! Tails were beautifu... read more »
We had heard much about Charmingfare Farm, and stopped with our toddler grandson. Perhaps the special Halloween and Christmas events offer more. When we arrived they had no guide or map of the farm, s... read more »
Charmingfare is only 20 minutes away from Manchester which makes it a great place to visit when you have a few hours. My daughter had been a camper there and had very positive impressions so we went b... read more »
I brought my son and 3 grandsons, paid 19.00 each to get in.my kids were very excited about the birds of prey, imagine the disappointment when we got to a run down empty building, also saw at least 4 other empty buildings but do to their lack of information about 9 out of 10 of their animals we didn't know what we were missing out on.stepped on the porch of a building with grandson and so run down my foot went through the rotten wood. No hands on with the animals like at friendly farm in Dublin n.h. for 7 ea for a fantastic day.. I would have demanded our money back but they had another person from his own NH reptile farm putting on a show at their farm,he saved the day for us.if I had known I would have gone straight to the reptile farm.no shade or seats for the show and lots of poo to try to avoid sitting in for the show, farms fault not reptile people.If you have about an hour to kill and money to throw away then I say have a ball.
$84 for four people!! Waited in line to get on the horse drawn cart for over an hour (only 3 carts running on a nice Sunday afternoon. Staff all seemed very uninteresting in engaging with the public, they were all in street cloths. Rode in the cart for about 35 minutes, NOTHING at all to see, dropped us off to see "Santa", he was not even in a red outfit! The scenery was very drab, the Christmas lights were not even on! I kept thinking, it will get better around the next bend. NO, it did not! Do yourself a favor, head to Santa's Village if you are taking the kids to see Santa and the animals, this place was very disappointing! (and they overcharged my credit card!)
Had a wonderful time at Santa's Big Party on Sunday, December 13 with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons - Cole is 3-1/2 and Chase is almost two. They loved everything about it (except the long wait for the wagon ride to Santa's Big Party!) - they especially loved interacting with all of the characters at the Party - Santa himself, Rudolf, the Grinch, Christmas Mouse, a Chipmunk, and a Polar Bear. They weren't too interested in the bonfire or the some mores, which I thought was pretty funny. They also liked visiting with and feeding the animals both before and after the party. We got a special discount on the noon time slot which was great!
It was a very good experience. I once went there for a day camp, and I learned so much! Everyone one there is so nice and I love the enthusiasm! I will be going back soon
Total ripoff. Paid for what was supposedly a 2 hour evening of viewing Christmas lights via a Horse drawn buggy ride. Bought the tickets and were given absolutely no direction whatsoever where to go what to do etc. Had to ask other patrons to find out what to do next. They took our money and we were turned loose to just figure it out on our own. Finally found where the ride started and it lasted 20 minutes tops and was totally lame. Drive through your own neighborhood and look at lights and you'll be better off!!!
