What a charming place to relax with your family as you walk about the farm area. The Aullwood Audubon Center & Farm has free parking and charges a nominal entrance fee. Folks that work there are very friendly and knowledgeable. Kids should find this place fun and educational. Farming activities appear to be on-going. Parents may find the plants and... More

Visit a more relaxed time. Experience farm architecture, life style, animals and plant types. A great opportunity for children to experience living on a farm. Very very busy on special occasion weekends. Arrive early before the crowds arrive. The crowds take away from the quiet farm life experience and lend a more commercial experience to your visit.

Happened to visit during holiday bazaar so building was bursting with craft vendors and customers in addition to the regular animals, educational displays, and gifts. Could have bought a membership, but we are too far way to visit very often. Love the turtles! Plenty of parking, even for a special event. Indoor flush accessible restrooms, small cafe. Connected to Aullwood... More

There's the Charity A. Krueger Farm Discovery Center which offers the barnyard experience and is a great educational experience for all. Down the road and around the corner (or you can walk a trail from the farm) is the Marie S. Aull Education Center. Inside are more classrooms, two rooms for sitting to view birds at feeders, displays, gift shop,... More

Smallwood offers something for everyone. It provides an educational center and farm for children. Special classes are available to initiate city kids into country lovers. For adults, a beautiful garden provides a peaceful place to enjoy local plantings and colorful bird watching. Festivals draw crowds hoping to pet the new farm babies, to see gorgeous handmade quilts, and to savor... More

I walked with my family this Spring. Absolutely beautiful. Everything was starting to bloom and birds were singing. Everyone should make Aullwood a frequent destination.
