Maplewood Farm started as a thriving dairy farm, and then expanded with it's collection of over 200 domestic and farm animals and birds, which is great news for families who want to go and visit!
You can experience the farm through self-guided tours, and they offer a comprehensive booklet all about farming and the animals, so kids can learn all about farm life as they make their way around. They can learn all about breeding, feeding, the rearing of young animals, and the daily caring of the animals too!
If that wasn't all, Maplewood Farm also has a kid's pedal tractor to rent out, and kids can enjoy those interactive animal encounters including feeding the ducks, feeding the chickens, and even taking a pony ride!
Did you know Maplewood Farm also has running of the goats too? Sounds super fun!

It is a very nice place especially for kids to get close to farm animals

Went with friends and 2 babies before Halloween. 25 minute long line to get in with only one cashier. Considering it's all babies and little kids waiting, by the time they get in they are tired and cranky. Also $7.50 admission per adult seems a bit steep. Duck pond, some animals, small meadow with pumpkins laid out. The high point was how gentle the goats were... really like lapdogs!
Repeat? Probably not.
Also, parking is limited.
