This is a combined working farm and museum, and was a great weekend activity . You can get up close to the farm animals without stressing them unduly, unlike cuddle farms.

qqueen37: you've described our goal perfectly: a working farm, where the animals may be seen up close to learn more about them, but not a cuddle farm!

Interesting history and a fun place to visit, certainly unexpected in this small VT town. Adults will enjoy the history and the kids will enjoy seeing the farm animals. If you are visiting the area the farm is worth stopping at.
