Easy trails for walking
Dec 2020 • Couples
We are Trustees members and visited Appleton Farms recently for the first time. The trails are easy and marked, and the setting is quite pretty. The farm store has curbside delivery after ordering on their app, and some of their produce is quite unique. We bought some of their own meat and eggs, too.

Very disappointing

Paid $10 to take my daughter to a story hour which was supposed to include animals. All we saw was 2 cows from a distance and a couple chickens. Won’t go back

Might be worth a visit

It really depends on what you are planning to do. Based on reviews seems the hiking or farm activities with kids are main attraction. We popped in after visiting Appleton Farm. Pricey items and small selection. Saw mostly mom's with small kids in tow picking from the garden. Mom's in store a bit pushy to get that farm fresh milk and go home. If you're visiting the area not really a must see to go out of your way but may be ok for a look if nearby and interested in a hike. Stayed about 10 minutes.

They have a few nice easy hikes
You can see the cows get milked at 4 pm.
They have a little market with their own fresh milk and cheese and it is delicious.
You can pick basil etc

Very nice farmer's stand

The Appleton Farms dates back to King's grant in the 1700s and has stayed in the family. The grounds are meticulous and the farm store offers a lot of organic food choices, beverages and local gifts. A great place to let the kids see a real farm.

Nice easy day hike.

this place has mapped trails that are wide, clean and relatively flat. The farm is beautiful, and adjacent woods are very nice. We did a loop that totalled just under four miles. you could squeeze out six if you wanted to. This is a working farm with a farm store and visitor's center. We just hiked, so I can't speak for the farm's other attractions, but it has some organized activities as well so might be suitable for kids, especially on the right day.
There is a separate parking lot for the woods, which we accessed via trails from the farm. However, the woods allow off-leash dogs while dogs aren't allowed at all on the farm.

Friendly n educational farm
Mar 2019 • Family
Great experience even in off season. Warm welcoming staff. The sugar shack where they were making maple syrup was really neat. They took time to talk with us and show us around. The store was reasonable and had fresh products from that farm. They have children’s story time. Cows, chickens and goats. Nice to see a working farm.

This was an awesome visit
Oct 2018 • Solo
This was an awesome visit. It was rainy and damp and wished it would have been sunny but we made due. This is a working farm with many animals and we had lunch in the barn with chickens wondering about. It was so much fun. There is also a store at the entrance where you can purchase fresh foods including cheese and other items!

Beautiful but signage is lacking
Oct 2018 • Couples
Supposedly this venue offers 'wagon rides' on weekends at 11:30, 12:30 and 1:30 in October but good luck trying to find the pick up point. This property is massive (just under 1000 acres) and we originally entered at the Visitor Center entrance but was told to go to the Highland Street entrance. We walked down a path a 1/2 a mile and there was no directional signage as to where the pick up spot was. So we started walking the grass rides loop. We asked a few people we passed by and they had no idea what we were talking about. It was a beautiful place to walk around especially if you have a dog but eventually we turned around. There is a kiosk to pay for parking in the Highland Street area but the screen is difficult to read when the sun is out.
