Since 1980 Adams Farm has been offering afternoon and evening traditional Vermont sleigh rides pulled by Belgian draft horses, through the maple sugar grove, up along the ridge of their mountain, to an old log cabin for a warm up by the wood stoves before coming back down the mountain. At the cabin, visitors warm up by the fire and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and some tunes from the player piano. Enjoy a game of checkers while you're there.Currently in the summer months the Adams Farm offers; scenic tractor pulled wagon rides around the property, Rainbow Trout fishing in our privately stocked pond, and horse-drawn wagon rides.

The young man who drove the team was very informative about the horses! Also very informative about the Maple tree grove and process of making maple syrup. He was interesting and answered all of our questions! A beautiful day, lightly snowing, truly Vermont winter weather! A fun afternoon!

Went to farm years ago and so sad to see how aged it looked. If going for a sleigh Ride it was great. Nice stop and hear the history and conversation, but you can see how difficult farming has become to survive. Keep having to change on how to make money. Grounds were weathered, store unkept. Go there with farm... More

Scheduled a couples sleigh ride to provide a romantic setting to propose to my now fiancé. The day was perfect and our driver (Stacey) was great, so pleasant and also informative about the farm and our horse (Dan). We found out at the end that Stacey was nervous because this was her first ride with a proposal planned, she did... More

We booked a night time sleigh ride for our family of five. It was awesome! The temperature was perfect, the horses were magnificent, and the hot chocolate was delicious. Furthermore, the stories told on the sleigh and at the cabin were engaging and entertaining. The experience is what Vermont is all about...good people doing good things! Thanks to everyone at...

This is my second time doing the horse drawn sleigh ride and it doesn't disappoint. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. I brought some out of town guests that were just awestruck by the whole experience. I highly recommend the sleigh ride as something that everyone has to do at least once and visiting the farm to feed and... More

My wife and I have wanted to experience a 'One Horse Open Sleigh Ride' for several years. We were drawn to the Adam's Family Farm in 2012 via advertising in Yankee Magazine. Since we live several hundred miles to the south, planning and timing was always an issue. Most often, reservations had to be cancelled due to the lack of... More
