At Primrose Farm, the St. Charles Park District has revived a 1930s working farm so visitors can see how technology and social change have impacted the lands and farming communities of the Fox Valley. Primrose Farm is a living history museum where visitors may experience many of the day to day aspects of farm life.
Set among its 100+ acres of open agricultural space, historic farm demonstration plots and restored farm buildings offer an energizing environment where people of all ages can reconnect with some essential and long-lost arts and skills, such as learning how to milk a cow by hand, practicing the forceful art of blacksmithing, or participating in a farm chore day.
Offering a wide array of activities for visitors, the farm also features a fruit orchard, farm discovery trails, community garden plots, two picnic pavilions, a playground, and a wealth of native flora and fauna.
Primrose Farm is an ideal setting for family and friends to learn, play, and enjoy the surrounding scenery. Come on out and join us - you're sure to have a great time!
