Explore restored farm buildings, visit with farm animals and agricultural interpreters, stroll through 100+ acres of historic and modern rural landscapes or climb up on a vintage tractor in the fruit orchard. Exciting and educational activities await you in the farmyard! Hand-milk a Jersey cow, gather eggs from the chicken coop, groom a draft horse, feed the animals, bake biscuits in the woodstove and churn your own butter or help in the vegetable garden. The opportunities to learn and play are endless! Drop-in programs offered Wednesdays and Saturdays. Custom programs and birthday party packages available, too.
