  • The Wagner Farm is an actual working farm, not just a showplace. There is an active 4-H group and the kids raise many of the animals. The local farmers market is across the street. Lots of families go...  more »
  • It's rare to have this opportunity of living a relatively urban area as in Glenview, that there is a real working farm for the kids to visit and play. My grandkids love this place all seasons: they li...  more »

  • Great farm experience door kids in the northern burbs. I especially like the historic home, when it's open. My kids love the indoor mini-museum. We all enjoy the animals.
  • My 3 year old loves Wagner farm. We go visit the chickens and the cows. I feel like we come almost once a month. Wagner has tons of great events and programs and there is constantly something new to do or see.
  • A bit disappointing after reading all the good reviews. The one good thing... it's free. A small patch of land, but there's chickens and cows and a couple horses... can't feed or touch any of them. We walked our 3 yr old through the community vegetable garden in the middle of the mini-farm and were promptly scolded by staff that we weren't supposed to go there. Would be nice to tell folks with signs! She's a gentle girl who liked to touch the tomatoes and pumpkins. We were there about 30 minutes. We spent $12 for a package of small toy farm animals at the gift shop - our contribution for a one-and-only visit.
  • This was a nice short summer activity for the kids. With two little kids (3 and 2) it lasted approximately 2 hours. They enjoyed the chickens, but there weren't many other animals (one cow and two horses). The main building had fun activities but it's still limited.
  • I understand that this place is free but free does not equal to unsafe for children. They have a large apple model where children can pull out slices. First some of the slices can get completely out crushing children playing with that thing, second they grease it with a ton of toxic mineral oil or vaseline which gets on the hands , jackets of children and ultimately in their mouth. This place should be shut down by City of Glenview or at least forced to make the indoor play area safe.
