At the cabin, visitors warm up by the fire and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and some tunes from the player piano. Enjoy a game of checkers while you're there.Currently in the summer months the Adams Farm offers; scenic tractor pulled wagon rides around the property, Rainbow Trout fishing in our privately stocked pond, and horse-drawn wagon rides. « less

Although the border collie was very friendly, as were some of the young girls walking some of the animals, my grandchildren and I were horrified to see several rabbits in the large enclosure with their eyes oozing of pus from injuries of some kind (and some didn't even look like they still had their eye). The large pig was also... More

I WISH I COULD GIVE ZERO STARS! this was horrible. it cost 7$ for adults and $5 for children (a 2 year old)- which its fine if it lived up to what it says on line- or even what it used to be. we were given a 1 basket of food and all of the animals were so over fed... More

We did go off season i guess, but even so the place was a mess. Not at all what the website explained to be. It was like a ghost town and when a man did come out he was munching on like beef jerky or something and was not welcoming at all. He was not mean just not friendly. It... More

Enjoyed our sleigh ride with our two ladies drivers both with a great sense of humors. Good stories and history of the farm. We made a stop at a little log cabin on their farm in the woods and had hot chocolate...yum. We really need to support our farms and all the hard work it takes to run them. Enjoy... More

I loved our visit to the farm! It was like being a little kid again, feeding all the friendly animals.

As my DH spent the morning on Mt Snow doing the tough Mudder, I spent the morning with my 2 girls, ages 1 and 3 at Adams Family Farm in Wilmington, and it was terrific. There were lots of animals to see and feed, and we were able to get right up close. My tots were right in the bunny... More

I happened on this charming family farm while driving through, and really enjoyed my visit. For a small fee you can tour the grounds and get a bucket of various feed for the different animals. There's a nice picnic area, a lovely pond, barns, nice gift shop, and hayrides. I believe in winter sleigh rides are offered too. As an... More

I can't say enough good about The Adams Farm! My tour groups have visited it 3 different times and always it's one of the favorite things my guests do. For a small fee of I think $12 my groups enjoy a wagon ride through the farm pulled by antique tractors with narrated stops along the way including their maple sugar... More

I have been to the farm with my groups more than once and it is always a great time! Love the family (flash included), the demonstrations and hands on goat feeding are so much fun! The wagon ride through the property is amazing, one customer told me today that he loved it so much because it reminded him of where... More

Adams Farm has been one of my family's favorite attractions for years. It's not the Bronx Zoo but it doesnt try to be. It's a real VT farm that doing a great job fighting the uphill battle that all small farms face. Go, see some different things, try some different activities, you'll have fun.
