Since 1980 Adams Farm has been offering afternoon and evening traditional Vermont sleigh rides pulled by Belgian draft horses, through the maple sugar grove, up along the ridge of their mountain, to an old log cabin for a warm up by the wood stoves before coming back down the mountain. 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.

Petting farm

Kids had a great time feeding the farm animals just watch out for the electric fencing in some areas. Kids really loved the bunny coop. Prices are rather high though.

Adams Family Farm is one of our favorite traditions. It's a great place for kids and adults alike. We particularly love the animals and the sleigh ride. Call ahead and see if any animals have just given birth! Holding a baby goat or lamb is about as good as it gets!

We went on the sleigh ride tour of the farm and had a terrific time. We were a large group of extended family ranging from about one to sixty years old, and everyone really enjoyed it. The farm, forest and mountain views were beautiful and idyllic. The sleigh stopped at a charming log cobin with a wood-burning stove and hot... More

Wonderful place to bring children or find the child within you. The owners have a great idea of creating a basket of foods you can purchase to feed to the animals in the petting area. It comes with an instruction sheet telling you which foods each animal prefers and how you should feed them. Emus and chickens get food thrown... More

Nothing extremely redeeming about this farm, although it was fun to pet and feed the animals. Nice border collie wandering about, although having an electric fence out in the open doesn't seem that safe for children.

We went here for a evening sleigh ride. We arrived a few minutes early and made our way into the store. We were pleasantly surprised the greeting we got a baby lamb!! We got to hold it and everything! My boys were thrilled to say the least. They harvest their own maple syrup and there is fresh meat that you... More

Not much to do on a rainy day in the winter. Nice farm, with an indoor petting zoo. Although some may say pricey to pet a few farm animals, it was a nice way to help out local farms. They offer fresh and frozen meat, honey and syrup from their farm. As well as local area items. Hay rides and... More

This was my second visit to Adams Family Farm, was there previously in 2012, and enjoyed myself just as much this time. The animals are extremely well cared for.... friendly, curious, and love to be petted and fed; you can buy baskets of food from the store/gift shop. They give you a little chart telling you who eats what. In... More
