My boyfriend and I traveled out to Lancaster for a real interactive farm experience, which we got at Verdant View. We were greeted by the friendliest people and did the farm tour. Yes, it was smelly and messy like other people commented, but it's an actual working family-run farm. What do you expect? Be prepared and wear old sneakers or... More

We had such a great time on the Farm Tour! Our guide Megan took the time to answer questions and show us all the ins and outs of how the farm operates. We fed adult cows, gave bottles to the calves and fed the Chickens. (The calves were ADORABLE!) We also saw how the milking business works and took a... More

My 3 and 5 year old's had the best time at this hands-on farm. They were so excited to feed the calf from a bottle, feed and pet the chickens/ducks, milk a cow, pet a goat and bunny, feed the mommy cows and take a wagon ride. The tour guides were actual farm workers who really love what they do... More

We had a great time visiting the farm. My daughter got to hold a cat, feed baby goats, collect eggs, pet a sheep, bottle feed a calf, and milk a cow. This is an authentic experience in a clean, well run operation. The staff was kind, welcoming, and informative. Our group had experienced farm goers and first timers and we... More

We did this tour at the last minute. Our tour guide was definitely a farm worker and not a tour guide. He couldn't answer many of our questions and didn't have great descriptions. However, it is a working farm and gives you an idea of everything that goes into dairy farming. My son was more interested in the dog Scooby... More

My wife booked the trip for our family (we have 2 children; 6 year old boy and 10 year old girl). The first thing we noticed when pulling up it was not a "contrived" experience. It looked like all the other working farms in the area. Our tour guides taught us about the farm and let us experience what was... More

We stopped into Farmland Fun on a sunny Sunday afternoon in mid-October. My wife is a farm-animal enthusiast (putting it mildly) and the four kids we had in tow were pretty excited to see the workings of a dairy farm, and to pet some animals. We arrived and were greeted by the farm dog, who was very friendly. There were... More

I sent my 5-8 year old summer campers. They had a great time. They were talking about all the animals they saw. The funny thing is they really liked the dog, Roscoe. They enjoyed brushing the cows and seeing the baby kittens. The teachers in the group said the tour guide did a wonderful job answering their questions, which coming... More

We didn't stay at the B&B. I booked the farm tour with wagon ride online while we were staying at Hershey. It was interesting for the kids, but isn't the best smelling place around for sure! I know it's a working farm, but the area the cows are kept in was really, really poop-y. The floor where the baby cows... More
