Took our 2 year old triplet grandchildren to the Drumlin Farm, part of the Audubon Society. There are plenty of animals to see and/or pet: sheep, goats, cows, pigs. We also saw a pony, Midnite, being groomed. The chicken house is great as it houses several varieties of breeds of chickens with explanations about their history and uses such as... More

My 4 and 6 year old really liked Drumlin, especially the hay ride ($1 kids, $2 for adults) and seeing the birds. We spent about two hours there and it was well worth the trip.

Drumlin Farm is a working farm that is part of the Massachusetts Audubon Society. It's a great place to spend the day, go for a picnic and learn about birds, wildlife, conservation and farming. The farm offers classes to people of all ages and provides camp experiences for children in the summer. There are several programs every year specifically for... More

We've taken our children here through the years, and now we're taking our grandchildren. It is consistently a great place to walk around, see the animals (domestic and wild - note that the wild ones are animals which came to Drumlin Farm injured and can no longer survive on their own), and partake in activities throughout the year - plus...

This sanctuary is very well done - there is a nice variety of animals both wild and domestic. The variety of chickens was amazing and the pens/cages for all the animals were very large giving lots of roaming space - great to see. We visited mid-winter so the weather was not great but it was still well worth the visit.... More

I love visiting Drumlin. You can walk around and see all the farm animals, but they also have an assortment of rare animals; all of whom were rescues and are kept in nice habitats. We live nearby and always take our visitors there. Would be great for people with kids as they have a play area and hay rides.

I'll start by saying that Drumlin Farm seems like a great place to take my three-year-old. He loves the poultry house, where he can collect toy eggs from underneath toy hens, then sort and weigh them. There are also animals to visit, from sheep to owls to many breeds of chicken. That said, we will not be returning to their... More

Enjoy baby animals, gardens and barns. They have great seasonal and educational opportunities too. If your kid is very young, bring a stroller as some of the distances can seem like a long walk. Sometimes bug spray is a good idea. You can bring a picnic lunch.

We have spent a lot of time at Drumlin including classes and day camp. Just the right size and not overwhelming. It is a great place to walk, see animals, play and learn. Excellent education staff.

Cows, chickens, pig, goats, sheep, a fox, horses, owls, vegetable gardens, farm life --lots to see in a low-key setting. No pressure here but be prepared to walk alot, especially on the way back to the parking area which requires a long uphill trudge, tiring for weary kids and parents. Wonderful seasonal special events (sheepshearing, pancake breakfast, Halloween). I've taken... More
