We arrived at 10.30 am when there was still space in the parking lot. It was good to use our 'America the Beautiful' annual pass to enter the farm. We were rather underwhelmed by the farm - totally accepting the concept that it is a small holding based in 1771, but we felt we had seen everything there was to... More

Claude Moore farm is a fun and educational destination. We were there for tobacco harvesting and the staff who spoke in character were so informative and entertaining. As we walked the path it felt like we were walking back in time. The farm is situated in the forest area and looks so naturally colonial.

This is a great experience for the whole family - even dad will like it ! They do a really, really impressive job. You literally feel you are back centuries ago on a farm and seeing how it really was. You can go pretty much anytime and see the farm but the Market Fair weekends are really and truly the... More

This depiction of a 1771 poor tenant farm is not only educational, but also a place to slow down and ponder our past. The only privately run National Park, Claude Moore Colonial Farm offers a glimpse into the work required for a family to survive 245 years ago. The farm depends heavily on donations and volunteer hours - in fact,... More

Here for my husbands company picnic. The setting is incredible, like you are in a fairytale forest. The staff is attentive and the food was very good. It was a very hot day but under the trees it was cool and shaded. They had a mister set up next to the pavilion so you could walk under it to cool... More

Imagine this: a real working farm with crops and pigs and hens and geese, an exceptional bookstore, a plant and herb garden with seasonal plant sales and walking paths all within a 10 minute drive of Washington DC. They have fairs in Spring and Fall that showcase 18th century farming, cooking and soap making techniques and nice places to walk.... More

I recently went here for the second time. This place is like a mini Colonial Williamsburg, recreating life as it was in 1771 with living history guides in period costumes. The first time I visited, about a year ago, the market was open and there was a whole fair going on. There were lots of people in costume, and there... More

There are outside picnic tables and nice fields but that's it. The "farm" is very limited. Maybe ok for very little children

Take the little ones to the fall market fair to enjoy the primitive games and crafts. The ale and sausages are tasty, and they have some animals to see. This is a rustic working farm with cabins and tobacco barns in contrast to a wealthy re-creation like Mount Vernon.

I have been volunteering for twenty years behind the scenes at the market fairs which are the third weekend of May, July and October. They are great fun as well as educational. Lots for children to do. Lots of folks in colonial costume as well as food to purchase. The park works really hard at this. They are the only... More
