Anyone would have a nice few hours. A lovely place to stroll, a very small working farm. A garden with various plantings. A few classic farm animals with new piglets and lambs and calves in Spring. Some educational events like milking cows. A few people dressed in period clothing from a century ago. A guided house tour and interpreters at... More

Foster Fields gives you a chance to step back in time and see first hand the life of some of the settlers of Morristown. Great history and hands on experience for the kids and adults. You can spend a couple hours or the day don't miss it.

I used to go to Howell farm (near Lambertville, NJ) a lot as a kid and was expecting much the same, but Fosterfields has even more to see! There seemed to be a lot going on for kids, and the staff did their best to keep everyone involved. I really liked going into one of the houses and seeing the... More

Our family was introduced to Fosterfields this year and we liked it so much we purchased a family membership so we would be sure to visit many times. The setting is beautiful, there is light hiking and you can get up close to the farm animals. The buildings on the property can be visited during special events and every program... More

I got to this place accident while I was trying to find a friends home. This is located close to downtown Morristown, close to the green. It is a working farm and seems to be frequented by groups of school children as well as families. This would be a good place to go when it is not so busy. However,... More

We have never seen the Farm so crowded. We usually don't go when it's a big day for lots of kids but today being so pretty we went. They had many demonstrations of making butter, baking in a wood burning stove (cookies - yum), making cider, breaking down corn to feed the pigs, old fashioned games like tossing the corn... More

After reading all the reviews, I was all set for a very educational, quaint afternoon. What we got was a 1 hour walk (and that was us dragging things out) through a mostly empty old farm. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and there was not a single farm-person around. It is supposed to be a "living" farm but we... More

What a great experience, especially if you grew up on a farm. It is a living farm so children will enjoy all the animals. Interesting historic house on property (something to do with Paul Revere).
