My daughter wanted to go here to see the animals. Unfortunately we were an hour early for the wagon tour and hadn't really planned on spending all day so we just went to the children's farmyard. There weren't really that many animals to see. Also...More

Our tour guide, Francine,was excellent. She entertained us with stories of the Webb family, the animals and cheese making as we road in the wagon. Well worth the extra three dollars to take the tour.

We come here as often as possible! Enjoy all aspects of the farm, and especially enjoy finding new secret places! The staff is always friendly and considerate as you are walking the grounds, pausing to wave, or allow you pass by without loud mower noise!...More
