The farm is pretty large, it has big pastures with cows, horses, chickens, and cats wander around; we've also been lucky to see many deer run across the fields. If... More

A beautiful 19th century farm that has been resurrected and preserved by the National Park Service. Set on a hill overlooking the Potomac, it features cows, pigs, horses, chickens and even a mule.

When in the area you must stop by! A great park with working farm. Beautiful! We would have stayed longer if it wasn't so unusually hot!

This is a great place to picnic with young children. The farm fascinates them and they occasionally have demonstrations to accompany the things you see. In addition to that, we saw both a deer and a fox on one visit.
