This was our second year going to the egg hunt, and this time, it was a total waste of time and money. It cost $55.00 for our family of three to go and buy one small bag of grain to feed the animals. What did we get for our money? Not much! Last year there was a charming story about Henrietta the chicken, hot cocoa, a marshmallow roast, Lindt chocolate, and a great gift bag at the end...none of that this year. They gave out a tiny bag with cheap junk and about 8 tootsie rolls. Lame! To top it off, they charge everyone the same price, kids and adults alike. If you need to cover the cost of supplies for the kids, fine, but the adults get nothing, so why the full $17 price? To add insult to injury, they only have porta-potties. My little girl will not use a porta-potty, so we were out of luck. Can't blame her, they are nasty! Take some of that exorbitant admission fee and put in some restrooms. Felt like a total ripoff this time around! Do yourself a favor, skip this "charming" little place.

Having been to the farm for the last four years, this year was the best one yet. Despite the nasty, cold weather, the staff made it fun and exciting for the kids. The improvements made over last year will bring me back for the other festivities during the year. This was a great family event!

We try to make it to most of the special events every year. The kids especially love the Children's Trick Or Treat at Halloween and the Egg-citing Egg Hunt for Easter. Santa's Big Party is great too. There is always so much to do! Feeding and visiting the animals, pony rides, hayrides, tractor rides, the kids have a blast. And if you join their email club, you get alerted to online discounts. It's always a fun day! I highly recommend it!

My Grand children are twins 24 months and a 12 month old. They loved every aspect regarding the day. The animals were friendly and well kept..The egg hunt was well planned and well stocked with eggs. Tractor ride was amazing. The farm is beautiful. Charmingfare Farm is definitely a family oriented. well organized place to bring your children. There is a wide variety of events to enjoy.
