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.

Petting farm

Kids had a great time feeding the farm animals just watch out for the electric fencing in some areas. Kids really loved the bunny coop. Prices are rather high though.

We had a great time feeding the animals and touring the property on the wagon tour with a group of nine children under six years of age.

Amazing family run farm with stuff to do for the entire family. Paintball for teens, petting farm, pony rides, fishing, tractor rides for smaller kids, trail rides. This place has it all. Spent 8 hours there on Sunday and felt like it was only 2 hours. Will be going back again and again with my family.

I visited the farm with my 2- and 4-year old sons and it was a perfect activity. Frolicking n the fields, feeding many different animals with a generous basket of animal food. And a lovely tractor ride where we learned about making maple syrup and went on a toddler-appropriate "hike" to a bear cave. Very family friendly. Highly recommended.

Popped in for a visit on a weekend afternoon in April and had a great time. They have both indoor and outdoor petting/feeding areas. You can buy a $5 basket of food which included grains, fresh veggies, hay, etc and instructions on which animals were to be fed what. The staff is great - they give you lots of freedom... More

Thank you for your visit! We are glad that your family had a good time. Be sure to visit us in the summer when our animals are fully outside, and the grounds are more tidy and green, or even in the winter for a sleigh ride. :) More

Adams Family Farm is one of our favorite traditions. It's a great place for kids and adults alike. We particularly love the animals and the sleigh ride. Call ahead and see if any animals have just given birth! Holding a baby goat or lamb is about as good as it gets!

We went on the sleigh ride tour of the farm and had a terrific time. We were a large group of extended family ranging from about one to sixty years old, and everyone really enjoyed it. The farm, forest and mountain views were beautiful and idyllic. The sleigh stopped at a charming log cobin with a wood-burning stove and hot... More

Wonderful place to bring children or find the child within you. The owners have a great idea of creating a basket of foods you can purchase to feed to the animals in the petting area. It comes with an instruction sheet telling you which foods each animal prefers and how you should feed them. Emus and chickens get food thrown... More

Nothing extremely redeeming about this farm, although it was fun to pet and feed the animals. Nice border collie wandering about, although having an electric fence out in the open doesn't seem that safe for children.
