Fun and nice

Animals were so cute and we had a lot of fun. It was for a birthday party but I would definitely go back.

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!

Come prepared to spend the entire day. There are about 25 activites/events for one price except for a few attractions which cost extra but you will be having so much fun you probably will not mind paying a few dollars more for the other things. There are clean bathrooms and a nice variety of food at the Pitchfork food bar.... More

I took my son to White Post Farms today. It was $16. per person just to get in. Lots of yard ornaments from China for sale. The petting zoo had a really nice assortment of animals but expect to pay to feed them. Each little bucket of food was $5 and each bottle was $2.50 i think. Anyway, you'll spend... More

If you have young kids this is a really nice thing to do. If you live nearby it's fun to do every once in a while. Still, a lot of people come from the boroughs to this place and it gets pretty hairy at peak times like the Fall Festival. I live right around the corner and I totally avoid... More

Ok of all the farms I have been too now this is one of the best as far as things to do. The price is ok but should include more because there are plenty of extra 2 dollars here 5 dollars there. I have three kids so this can become pricey. The one good thing about this place is that... More

They had the best performing parrots I've ever seen. Obviously money is no object when keeping customers happy. This is a world class show on a farm. What a great experience for me and my children. Thank you WPF.
