  • Great for families. Aside from the museum and nature center there is also a working farm with cows, pigs, chickens etc. They also have more exotic animals such as llamas​ and otters. The also rent the place for parties and have a farmer's market on Sunday mornings during the summer.
  • It's a nice change of scenery from a typical park. Could use more guide signs to get around more easily. Sometimes gets very crowded at the play ground.
  • It's a great place for kids, you can learn about organic farming, deep forests for trekking. The Forest volunteers take you for a tour with family or groups, lots of animals like river otter, lama, horse, cows, ducks, turkey, ram, sheep. The museum had a photography exhibition of various female photographers from Stamford, some truly impressive clicks! You can stay the day enjoy the screnity and have meals with your family and kids!
  • Excellent value for money. A great farm experience, with varied hikes and walks through woodland settings. Local museum is small but focused, and there's a great play area for larger kids outside.
  • Fabulous and educational place to visit. I love the maple syrup they make and seeing all of the animals. A great family place.
