Where are we going today?

How would you like to hold a newly hatched chick? Feed a one ton oxen? Or perhaps groom a cute miniature horse?

All experiences that you can enjoy at Retreat Farm in Vermont! If you love animals, then you will LOVE spending the day around all of those cuties!

There is even some history within Retreat Farm, as it's actually been a huge part of the landscape since all the way back in 1836. Pretty cool!

This seasonal family farm has so many experiences that kids will love, and won't be forgetting in a long time! There are baby animals to play with, such as cute lambs and baby goats (kids - they are actually called "kids" - see, you are learning already!)

Did you know that at Retreat Farm you can even feed piglets, or visit with the farmer too? There are even toy trucks for you to drive where you can pretend to be the farmer and work on your own farm!

Did we mention the llamas that you can get magical kisses from? Now THAT is a unique experience!

It's not just animals that will keep your day exciting at Retreat Farm. With all of the trails in the area, why not grab your walking shoes, and enjoy them - all year round! There is even cross country skiing in the winter. 

There is also a fun and educational one mile loop that have placards along the way where you can learn all about the fun facts, such as where lightning struck a tree.

Animals, fun events, education and llama kisses - what more could you want at Retreat Farm! Let's get petting!
