  • I LOVE the Oliver Kelley Farm! What started as a family tradition in the summers growing up has turned into a lifetime of memories. I cannot wait to bring children of my own some day! Hands on learnin...  more »
  • It's like stepping into the past. The location is beautiful and the self guided tour at your own pace is really a draw for us. It's like stations: go see the hair art in the old house, visit the sheep...  more »

  • Really enjoyed the Seed Swap last Saturday. Missed the speaker presentation, which was during the first hour, but my family loved making seed art! It was really neat to talk with the various people who had brought seeds to share/exchange. Looking forward to future events and exploring the rest of the farm!
  • So much fun. Loved the cooking class.
  • The entire family had a wonderful time! It was a fun interactive learning experience about life on the farm in 1850. They have a beautiful garden, animals, the homestead with a root cellar and so much more! I would definitely recommend it!
  • I'm not really big into history, but they had a whole bunch of activities that we could do even some for the young ones... There's petting zoo and the a diagram on how different foods work and how they are created, the pig one has a stomach that basically opens up and shows us where each part of the pig comes from like where the pork chops come from and where the bacon comes from and there's a vegetable one where you can move vegetables from an assembly line and there's a milking one where you milk a cow and you see how people milk a cow using machinery. You can also I'll take a tour of mr. Kelly's house. They have interactive people in costume teaching us how to cook in the olden days and how to clean in the olden days there is a giant Garden where you can pick food and water plants there are also horses. There are some Barn cats so if you are allergic to cats I would not recommend going into a few of the barns, but all in all this is quite a fun place and a good place to bring your ages 7 to whatever age children and Friends
  • What a great place to let kids have some outdoor time and exercise, plus learn important information about farming both past and present. The new visitor's center and kitchen with new gardens is a really nice addition to this site.
