Must do especially for kids and animal lovers
Jun 2021 • Family
This experience was very hands on especially for the kids. We were able to hold a lot of the baby animals, and the young lady who guided us answered all of our questions. We also took a hay ride and the kids took a barrel ride. The family was very warm and welcoming and we really appreciated them letting us into their farm.

The Old Windmill Farm
Ronks, PA
Only superlatives.

Took my 11-year old Dallas-raised grandson to Pennsylvania to see a different way of life. This visit was the highlight of the entire trip for a number of reasons.

We were offered a choice of tour guides - the mom, a teenaged daughter or a 9-year old girl. We CHOSE the latter because of the age similarity to my grandson and it was a hoot. It was like Disneyland on a farm with Cinderella as our guide. She was charming, loquacious, enthusiastic, informative, fearless, and funny. She would be very serious and then throw a zinger at you. My grandson immediately bonded with her. They milked a cow (“Oops wrong one, she kicks; this one is docile and won’t mind.) She even milked the dog showing him all mammals make milk.

She made him (let him) carefully “goose” the hen so he could help her collect the eggs for the day and showed him how to properly pick up and hold the various baby animals. Did you know turkeys are terrible mothers and that you never pull a guinea pigs tail (it’s a joke.) The funniest part was her taking his hand and putting it in a calves’ mouth to show him how a calf’s tongue grabs the udder to suck milk.

Cows, horses, mules, chickens, turkeys, piglets, guinea pigs, lambs, goats, rabbits - all in a petting zoo. The trip ended with Cinderella grabbing a 1200 pound horse and taking my grandson on a “Mad Hatter” ride (well, maybe not so wild, but the riding compartments behind the horse reminded me of the caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland) - the barrel train ride.

My only regret with the whole visit was that I couldn’t leave him there for a week or two of summer camp to have the experience of what it is like to work on a farm and live outside the city.

Fun, interactive, and authentic

The owner and his daughter were so welcoming and sensitive to our needs! We loved the hands on experience- feeding the animals, the hay ride, the homemade food for sales. Highly recommended!!!

My family and I had an amazing time and visit! It was so peaceful there! The hayride was so good. The conversation and learning from Jesse and Anna made our experience even the more special! We look forward to visiting again!

Fun on the farm!
May 2021 • Family
This place is amazing! Don’t miss this. We did the farm tour and got to be up close to all the animals! My son loved feeding the calf, holding the lamb, milking the cow, holding a few other animals! It wasn’t done there he got harvest the eggs from the hen house. The family was terrific. We will be going back and telling others all about it!

Great family fun!!
May 2021 • Family
Highly recommend. Great experience for families. We took our grandkids ages four through 11 and they all absolutely loved it. One of their favorite parts was the barrel train horse drawn ride. Our guide, Elizabeth was great with our grandchildren. The Amish family was very friendly.
