We recently visited the farm after hearing amazing reviews. We visited with my 10 year old son and 6 year old daughter and they hada great time. It is absolutely beautiful and they have a wonderful exhibit that allows the kids (and adults!) to see and touch the farm animals up close. They got to milk a cow, hold some hens, pet goats and bunnies, etc... There is also a neat exhibit where you can watch the cheesemaking process.
The problem we had was that there were so many other buildings on the map, but they were soooo far away! When we asked about it at the front desk the woman was very uninformative. We also asked in the gift shop and weren't able to get much information from them either. This could be a great place tovisitif you can just figure out how to get fromplace to place and what actually goes on at each of the locations.
Plan to pack food as well. There is only one food cart and it is crazy expensive! Super small sandwiches for about $7. The grilled cheese was a good size and a little cheeper, but we didn't see any cheese on it! Definitely save money and bring your own food.
