I'm not really big into history, but they had a whole bunch of activities that we could do even some for the young ones... There's petting zoo and the a diagram on how different foods work and how they are created, the pig one has a stomach that basically opens up and shows us where each part of the pig comes from like where the pork chops come from and where the bacon comes from and there's a vegetable one where you can move vegetables from an assembly line and there's a milking one where you milk a cow and you see how people milk a cow using machinery. You can also I'll take a tour of mr. Kelly's house. They have interactive people in costume teaching us how to cook in the olden days and how to clean in the olden days there is a giant Garden where you can pick food and water plants there are also horses. There are some Barn cats so if you are allergic to cats I would not recommend going into a few of the barns, but all in all this is quite a fun place and a good place to bring your ages 7 to whatever age children and Friends
Easy parking. Would like more staff at the beginning telling customers about attractions and what/where should start. Polite staff as "old time farmers" were knowledgeable and very friendly. Staff member Peter "old time staff" put my daughter to work in the field and she absolutely loved learning and participating. Looked through gift shop and didnt see as much Kelley Farm specific merchandise as I had hoped. Enjoyed the comfortable chairs under the awning overlooking the trees and fields. Kids loved getting up close with the animals and feeding the sheep. Good place to let the kids run and explore.
Love all the new buildings and additional info about modern day farming. I love that when you makebthe little trek back to the original farmstead it's like going back in time and being able to experience What it was like for yourself. Very hands on. You get to cook, haul water and wood when needed. Garden and do farm chores just like they did in 1850. Always a wonderful time!
An exceptional historical place, not just taught but lived. Programs and learning for kids and adults if all ages.
Always a fun day out with our little one. We go once or twice a year. It's a little expensive but they have really added to the experience this year with their expansion. It's worth a visit.
