  • We visited on a Friday early afternoon. We essentially had the place to ourselves. If you do the house tour then plan on 1.5 to 2 hours. Since our timing was off we chose to skip the tour. The paper m...  more »

  • This is a working "field tripesque" kind of place. Many school groups visit here as well as locals to experience first hand working on a farm. Fun place for a day trip.  more »

  • A great place to learn about how a family farm was run at the turn of the nineteenth century. It is good for group tours.A large picnic shelter and a big tent for rental.It has a fine visitor center. Staff members are well informed .
  • Fantastic. We went for the Irish immigrant day and had such a great time. The weather was not the best, despite the forecast calling for sun, but you could spend as much time as you wanted indoors or under shelter as you spent time with all the animals and did all of the actitivies. We started out with traditional music in the guest reception and went on to the piglets, lambs (one only 3 days old, adorable), horse, cows, a calf, and various poultry, including the most gorgeous black and white turkey. We went into the kitchen and various other farm buildings and helped with the 'chores' for spring cleaning, My nephew, who is 11, got a real taste of life 100 years ago. We got to plant seeds, try Irish dancing, and even make a scarecrow. We also got to see fly tying for fishing from a master of the art. The staff and volunteers were all so friendly, we loved it. We would have stayed all day but lunch beckoned. We also had a short ride around the farm in the hay wagon and had a tour of the owner of the farm's cottage and garden. If you want something fun, educational and all natural, this is the perfect place to visit.
  • What a beautiful historical farm. The staff is wonderful and extremely knowledgeable about the Foster family on this working farm.
  • Great way to keep young kids entertained for an hour or two.
  • Working farm, on a small scale. Kids love it. Hours shown here are in season. Park is closed from late October until early April.
