  • Had a great time here volunteering for the Chester County Food Bank! Those goats and their babies are hilariously relatable to human families 👍🏻😂
  • Very nice park with plenty of trails to walk around on and animals to see. We saw a horse, a donkey, many goats, two sleeping pigs, some cows in pasture, and some beautiful chickens. The grounds can be a little hilly so that keeps it interesting and the grass is well cut and springy. A nice lady who works there gave us some treats to feed to the goat.
  • Took American friends to see it. A nice stroll with some activity engagements. A daughter of the owners joined us for a time. She is the future of that business.
  • A great small park. Enjoyed orienteering their amongst the farm animals
  • Barn with animals is a hit with small kids. Paved wooded trail is easy for them as well
