  • I've taken my pre-k through elementary aged children here several times. All of our visits were before the recent remodeling. On the times we've gone, we've met with costumed workers that are able to ...  more »

  • Easy parking. Would like more staff at the beginning telling customers about attractions and what/where should start. Polite staff as "old time farmers" were knowledgeable and very friendly. Staff member Peter "old time staff" put my daughter to work in the field and she absolutely loved learning and participating. Looked through gift shop and didnt see as much Kelley Farm specific merchandise as I had hoped. Enjoyed the comfortable chairs under the awning overlooking the trees and fields. Kids loved getting up close with the animals and feeding the sheep. Good place to let the kids run and explore.
  • Love all the new buildings and additional info about modern day farming. I love that when you makebthe little trek back to the original farmstead it's like going back in time and being able to experience What it was like for yourself. Very hands on. You get to cook, haul water and wood when needed. Garden and do farm chores just like they did in 1850. Always a wonderful time!
  • New additions to the Kelly Farm expand the learning opportunities to the present era. The old farm still provides the historic perspective as it has in past years. It's worth multiple visits during the year to experience farm life throughout the growing season.
  • Well run. My kiddo loved it. Learned a little about farming and the history of Kelley farm. Beautiful area
  • It's great to visit an old farm place, brings back memories of going to the grandparents farm when I was younger. The place is neat and well kept, and kept in original working order with all the old building and equipment. Everything that is repaired is done with original technique even using the old square nails. All the workers on the farm were very nice and very informative. About 3 miles of trails you can walk, can't wait to go back in the fall to see the colors of all the trees.
