We used to get season's passes for Butterfield, but the kids started getting bored, and the staff ruder. We took our little ones and some out of town family on the pumpkin hunt, and they were flat out mean to the kids. We stopped going after that.

Made to look like a petting zoo which it is not. No flushing toilets. I have never been to place that charges children under five, which was $10.99, (from "able to walk" as the called it). Charge $1 for a pony ride, (which sounds good initially), but all they do is take you around in a little circle, once. It... More

We went on a pumpkin hunt for Halloween, the tractor was driven by a teenager with little driving experience, it slid backwards down a hill and jackknifed with lots of little kids on board. No one was hurt but a lot were scared. The whole place left a lot to be desired.

Lots of fun for city type kids to see and touch farm animals. Bring rubber boots as it can be muddy, and don't wear new clothes!

This large farm introduces kids safely to all types of farm animals. The animals are well taken care of, and there are plenty of people around to answer questions. In the summer, they offer camps for kids, and in the fall they have a huge pumpkin hunt which many families look forward to all year.
