A step back into colonial days

Visited the farm with the grandchildren. It's small but worth the visit with the farm animals milling around. A nice take if you're also walking through Colt State Park. You could park at the Park and walk through the park to the farm. The little ones loved it!

Love this place! Went today with a group of stay-at-home moms and our children. We went right at 10 we were actually a little early, and one of the people who works there opened it early for us. We started with a brief talk of the rules - no chasing the animals, picking them up, etc. Beautiful land, and you... More

This is a quaint Early American working farm. They have great seasonal events and activities; mostly geared towards children. However, many adults get in on the fun. Learn about RI History just after the War of Independence when farming and small businesses were the basis of the economy. The resident manager and docents for the farm are friendly and engaging...

Seasonal fun and good educational lessons for all ages at this living museum. Easy to find and a beautiful place to visit when in Bristol. You can spend an hour or half a day on the Bristol waterfront.

After a welcome by the staff person, we toured 1700s-vintage home and farm buildings. Seeing how people lived -- farmed, ate, slept, and managed on a day-to-day basis 100s of years ago is eye opening. The farm is self sustaining and raises chickens, turkeys, cattle, etc. And some of the chickens even like to be petted !!!

This place is awful. Nothing is open and no part of it is a museum. The food is awful and the people are rude. The music is bad and there's nothing to do. We paid 64 dollars and every penny was a waste. This is the worst farm I've ever been to. You'll be bored out of your mind. Don't... More

A small farm with items dating back to the Revolutionary War. Best to go when programs are scheduled and staff are wearing period attire. We attended an Animal Science BSA merit badge course here, and it was very interesting.

I went first on Monday - they are closed - Tuesday was a cool, rainy day so it was pretty much deserted. It is a small place with some farm animals & buildings. Go when they have special events scheduled for a much better time, especially with family. Staff was pleasant & took time to answer questions.
