Costly, but kids love it!

Nce for kids to experience being around different animals & old style homes (Imagination for them). They charge for every little thing however. We've also had B-days parties here... read more

I've loved White Post Farms since I discovered it 14 years ago. My wife and I used to go before my daughter was born and we continue to go today. My daughter is 5 1/2 years old and absolutely adores it. The animals are tame, you can pet most of them, and they'll get to know you if you go... More

An easy place to please most. This place has plants and garden accessories, a good selection of fruits and vegetables to buy, a place for a bite to eat ant for the kids a petting zoo. You can even have a kids birthday party here.

My family and I had a great time here. We loved looking at the animals and feeding the baby goats. The tractor ride was fun and we enjoyed going in the little houses. The playground was cute too. Just be aware that they only take cash (at least that was the case when we were there).

White post farms is a nice place to visit but be prepared to bring a lot of cash. Everything is expensive and geared to little children who love to ask for everything. So word to the wise...

Hidden behind a really nice farm stand that features fresh baked pies and breads, local produce, a great sandwich counter, sushi and even a coffee/smoothie bar is the only petting zoo around. You walk through the garden center to the back where the entrance to White Post Farms is located and are greeted by a talking cow that welcomes you.... More

This is a good spot for take-out at lunch. They have good sandwiches and soups. They could use more help behind the counter. In the summer there are picnic benches outside.

We have visited many times over the years and even had my grandson's 3rd birthday party there. Feeding the animals is always fun and special event activities are great. Also, don't miss the take out food!
