Family and I had fun exploring. There isn't any set agenda, so you can wander around at your leisure. Kept my 4 yo and 1.5 yo stimulated. Folks running the farm are knowledgeable and very friendly. Would definitely return.

Took our kids to the historical part and my daughter loved the animals. They also have a historic house you can go in and visit. If you have some free time definitely give this place a try if you like history
