The price is the only downside to visiting white Post Farms. It's a great Halloween tradition - the fun can't be beat for the kids. The lines are long and the price is prohibitive for some, but the kids smiles make it all worth while.

“The Place for Kids”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great place to take the kids and grandkids to feed the animals there. They will scream with delight and have the time of their lives. Only problem we have each time going there is trying to get the kids to leave, hahaha.

“Fun way to spend a day”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We took my toddler niece here on a very hot day and lots of people had the same idea. Despite the crowds we had a great time and she loved the little train ride. There was plenty for her to do and we didn't even do the water slides or the bouncers. She was asleep before we even got to the car! Everyone we met was very friendly.

“A Fun Day Out, Not Too Crowded but bring CASH”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

On Monday (a school holiday) we took our 6 year old twins to White Post Farms. I had seen the commercials and had heard about it but had never been as it's about 30 minutes from our house and there are other farms near us. However, this was truly a playland. Tons of baby animals to feed, include little lambs and goats that were just learning to stand. Plus even baby pigs and cows, zebras and camels.
There was a wooden play area for young children, big bouncer slides (4) and then another play area for bigger kids with a wooden pirate ship, boat, and monster truck.
We went during "Princess and Pirate" weekend so each child received a tiara and pirate hat, plus there was a Pirate show where at the end the children got to help find the treasure.
We also did the hayride (which was included) and a pony ride and train ride (which were extra).

We spent a few hours there and had a lovely time.
I did think it was a little expensive, $14 plus tax for all of us (which included access to the bouncers). Also, they only accept cash (though there is an ATM on site, it does charge $3 for a withdrawal). I would suggest bringing a cooler for lunch to save $$. There were picnic tables located throughout the farm.
One thing that I didn't like is that the bouncers are in sand and children have to take off their shoes but keep on their socks so things get a bit messy pretty quickly (my daughter didn't want to go barefoot because the sand was hot).
And the hay ride was not on actual hay though it did go through a nice corn field.
