I had visited Coggeshall Farm in May for the Sheep Shearing Festival which I enjoyed so much I wanted to come back for Breakfast in the Barnyard. My 4 year old daughter had an amazing time. She enjoyed bringing firewood inside, feeding the chickens, finding eggs in the hay loft, putting hay out for the sheep, brushing the cows, and... More

This is s small but historically interesting working farm. There is a home from the 1700's that is original. There are many animals you can meet up close; chickens, turkeys, cats, a donkey, cows and sheep. The two women who worked there were wonderful, very knowledgeable, and interesting to talk to. My two boys 9 & 10 loved it. A... More

I have visited several times for the Harvest Fair - great demos, nice music, fun for kids, etc.. Kids also enjoyed going to see the baby animals in the spring.

We visited Coggeshall recently with our boys and nephew. Very good representation of colonial-era life on the farm. Chickens and turkeys roam the grounds. Can visit larger animals in the pasture. Nice way to spend an hour or so in the area.

I took my daughters, ages 8 and 3, to their Saturday morning, 9 a.m. "Wake up the Barnyard" event and was very impressed. We like Plimoth and Sturbridge and the Audubon's Drumlin Farm, so we are not new to farm visits or historic farms, but we learned new things here and, even better, got to DO more here.

It was1those days when I was Googling "things to do with the kids in rhode island". So, my husband & I took our 8 yr old twin girls to Coggshell Farm on that Sunday afternoon. I'm SO happy we found it! I love the fact that it's an average home(not mansion or palace) so you can see what it might... More

I set up a field trip here with 5 families. What a great day. It was nice to step back in time and have someone to answer all of our questions and give us lots of information to help us understand why things were done the way they were and how some of that has evolved today. They are very... More

there was no staff available. There was nobody around at all. We thought it was closed and left. During certain times it is a great educational atmosphere

My husband and I frequently like to do cooking classes while on vacation. While researching the area, we saw that Coggeshall had a hearth cooking class and signed up for it. Before the class started we were able to walk around the grounds and see all the buildings and animals. The class itself is all about replicating cooking as it... More

My two children & myself spent an idyllic two hours at the farm this Saturday. The staff was amazing very much in love with their work, & took the time to answer the questions the boys had about everything. The boys even got to help collect eggs, & learned how to trick the geese into thinking you are a bigger... More
