  • Wonderful place with something for every age group. My grandson loves the play area and petting the animals. We got to milk a cow and ride on a horse drawn cart. The quilt show was fabulous with over 200 exquisite quilts. They have events every month. A must see!
  • I love this place! My toddler loves it also. I've been taking him since he was 6 months old and he even loved it then! It's got that homey farm feel and the staff is incredibly nice and dedicates a lot of hard work and love to those animals. They animals are very happy and we love to see all the babies in spring. The farm teaches children respect and love for farm animals and of course parents like it also 😃. Small family memberships are only $65!
  • I volunteered at the wine festival. I enjoyed the grounds and the scenery. The Metropark was easy to locate. There was ample parking at no cost. I plan to visit new year as well sample the various wines.
  • Best experience we had on vacation while in the Cleveland area! The staff was so friendly, price was good, grounds are well kept. Beautiful place.
  • It's a nice place for your kids to be able to see different farm animals as well as milking demonstrations and sheep shearing. They have a new theme almost every weekend in the summer and months following. During Christmas, they have breakfast w Santa, Christmas lights, and in Jan they do an ice festival. My kids and I go every year. It's usually extremely cold, but they have fire pits for roasting Smores and an ice slide my kids love! And of course ice sculptures done right in front of you. Good thing for the kids to attend.
