Reviewed September 2, 2013

Learned a lot about the farm, farm life and the family that owned the farm. Our daughter was able to help gather eggs in the afternoon from the chickens, we watched them milk a cow (although the 2013 way). Charlie the newest calf (baby cow) was adorable. One of their pigs was due to give birth any day. We missed the tour to the Willows, the old house on the farm where the family lived, but sat for a while on the front porch in the breeze. The transportation exhibit was also great, we had never seen a car with a crank before and it was pretty neat. Overall given what we originally went to see, we were surprised at how much there was to do. Our group ranged in ages from 10-44 and it was quite enjoyable. I would think this is for families with children, but also saw some couples wandering around.ut wound up spending the afternoon.

“Fosterfields”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

What a great experience, especially if you grew up on a farm. It is a living farm so children will enjoy all the animals. Interesting historic house on property (something to do with Paul Revere).

“Living history”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

I took my children several years ago. As I recall, my daughter enjoyed chasing the chickens around. Fosterfields offers many educational activities that are interesting for children and adults, alike.
