“Not all its made out to be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

I was expecting much more from all the advertisements. I farm did not have the organic food as promised in the brochures, the gardens were okay at best. I chose to arrive at the farm and hike the many trails to the Audubon Center, the trail was overgrown and spiderwebs everywhere. The staff was very friendly, I go hiking often when my husband and I travel, this one I would place at the bottom of my list, I will not return, Ohio has awesome park systems and hiking biking areas. I will go elsewhere

The Aullwood Audubon Center is dedicated to providing you with an exceptional outdoor nature experience. Their twilight educational hikes are an experience to behold. This is one of the best educational nature centers you will find anywhere

“Fabulous place for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Aullwood is a wonderful way to reacquaint yourself with nature. Take a walk in the woods, visit the working farm, see the animals... They have some wonderful festivals (Farm Babies, Applefest, Butterfly Counts, Enchanted Forest at Halloween). There are also opportunities for people to volunteer.

“Aullwood is a great place to take your children or grandchildren.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Last year we attended the pancake breakfast with our 4 grandchildren!
We then went to the farm for a tour, visited the animals and found the childrens "buckets" that had their names on them ...... to collect sap to make maple syrup.
We also purchase maple syrup that was made at the farm!
If you have never had an Aullwood Fresh Turkey for Thanksgiviing you are missing a treat!
