Coverdale Farm is a short 15 minute drive out of Wilmington, DE and less than 5 minutes away from Winterthur. As members of the Delaware Nature Society, we have been to Coverdale dozens of times over the years with our 2 children for free Farm Days in the summer when you can visit and see all of the farm animals to summer camps to evening cooking events. The farm itself is stunningly picturesque and the activities available for young children to milk a cow, feed the chickens and pigs, etc. are all well organized. Visit Coverdale's home page for a host of summer activities, my favorite was an evening organic BBQ followed by a hay ride around the farm.

This is a great place for kids to learn about the basics of family farming - but really from a historical perspective. Farming today is very high tech and industrialized. This is small and approchable with a warm caring staff that have been there for years and years. They are fantastic with kids. Great camps too!

I went to Coverdale farm on an overcast Sunday in October for their annual Harvest Moon Festival with two children ages 6 and 11. There was a fee of $8 for adults and $6 for kids but since we got there an hour and a half before they were closing and probably because of the inclement weather, we got in for free! We all hand milked a cow, bottle fed a calf, held two adorable chicks of different ages and learned a little bit about each animal. We also touched a live snake and navigated through a fun corn maze. There were also tables with art projects that you could make if you paid an additional $1-$3. They had had turtle races, worm composting and a hawk watch among many other activities earlier in the day and also the day before. There was food for sale such as hamburgers, hotdogs, funnel cake, kettle corn, cotton candy and Woodside Farm Ice Cream. I will definitely go back next year on a sunny day and I'd recommend it for all ages.
