In addition to the many animals in our petting farm, we are home to many of the attractions from the Enchanted Forest. We have pony rides, hay wagon rides, a cow train ride, the petting farm, the Enchanted Forest attractions, additional play areas, and a picnic area. We also have a pumpkin patch in the Fall. We are open to the public April 1 through early November, Tuesday through Sunday, 10 AM to 5 PM (last admission at 4 PM). We host school and group tours, birthday parties and group events also.

On many weekends we have special activities and gem mining and geode cracking.

I had my son's second birthday at Clark's and it was a hit! Our pavilion was right next to the parking lot and had its own private play ground for the kids. We chose the higher package ($14 per child under age 12) which included face paintings, a tour of the petting farm which they were able to pet, feed... More

Great place for young kids. Hay rides, animals and the old displays inherited from the Enchanted Forrest.

I am so grateful to Martha Clark and all the folks at Clark's Elioak Farm for rescuing so many pieces form the original Enchanted Forest. Its a bittersweet that the original Enchanted Forest could not longer be sustained, but joyful that they have found a new home at Clark's. Get lost in the maze, celebrate a birthday, or visit Willie... More

The Clarks have done a LOT for Howard County over the centuries -- from their contributions as farmers, legislators, judges and community activists, the family has made this one of the best paces to live in the country. But as much as the Clarks have done in the past, what they are doing today at Clark's Elioak Farm is just... More

I have been to this fantasy / petting farm several times. Martha Clark, a longtime, multigenerational farmer in Howard County, has blended a small petting farm with what was a decaying old Howard County children landmark, The Enchanted Forest. Ms. Clark took a chance and purchased several of the old nursery rhyme facades and characters, renovated them and then weaved... More

Do not expect a public zoo or Disneyland type experience, but a nice different type of trip to spend time with younger children. We went with our 2 year old and 8 year grandchildren and had a nice afternoon. There is a tractor that my grandson loved climbing on and a wooden model train to climb on, some nursery book... More

We visited this place mostly for its store: we hoped to buy meats from local farms. Unfortunately, the assortment was very limited and too expensive. Several items appeared to be for "tourists"... We ended up leaving this place in 5 min as we did not like it at all. They do have a playground behind the store and from what... More
