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.

Fun night with good food

We went to the farm for their BBQ dinner. All had a great time. The dinner was better than expected, kids loved the animals and smores making. Overall a very nice evening.

Stopped in for some Adams Farm Maple Syrup. My wife and I spend quite awhile there walking around the petting zoo and shopping around in the store. Wish I had a way to bring some of that fresh healthy meat back home. Did get some to cook while during our long weekend. The pies they sell are SOOOOO tasty. There... More

We walked through the farm and took a guided horseback ride. The staff were amazing, the horse guides were knowledgeable and friendly. Also, very concerned with their riders, stopped to help and took great care to make sure everyone was doing fine. Beautiful scenery, a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Would highly recommend!!

The ride in the woods was way too slow and gentle. Certainly easy for either older folk or people who have never ridden before. For those of us, it was a waste of money at $40 a pop and no point signing any of the disclaimers as the horses were way too tame. They are well looked after however and... More

Thank you for visiting us and providing input. Our horses are quite tame as probably 90% of the riders we have with us have never ridden before. If we know in advance, the guides do pick up the pace a little, depending on everyone in the group. For more advanced riders this ride is more of a relaxing, take in... More

We had a great trail ride! The instructors provided lots of interesting information about the farm while expertly guiding you through the trails. It was a beautiful late summer day, the perfect family activity to end our weekend away.

Staying in Wilmington so not that far to drive but worth it for my group which included kids 8 - 12. 14 year old not impressed. We did the petting zoo area and the wagon ride. Prices a little high, but felt like it went to people who cared about the land and animals.

Great place to spend an hour with My toddler. Even not on a great weather day, we had a fun time feeding all the different animals. There is a entrance fee and for additional 5 you get a really interesting feed package for the animals.

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.
