“Great Historic Farm, lots of farm animals”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

I love this farm! Great time for the kids..and adults to! There is a good variety of farm animals, goats, sheep, emus, donkeys, pigs, horses to mention a few. You can go into the chick room and watch chicks hatch in the incubator and hold baby chicks. The goat area is fun too, with an in-closure you can enter. There are big brushes to brush the pigs, hay or grain to feed the animals etc. There is also some history about the farm and it's days when it was affiliated with the Brattleboro Retreat. The buildings are historic, the whole farm is beautiful...and so clean. Karlene and Alan will answer any questions you have, and are wonderful hosts. Take a walk next door before you leave for a visit and samples at the Grafton Cheese factory.
