Working Field

This is a working "field tripesque" kind of place. Many school groups visit here as well as locals to experience first hand working on a farm. Fun place for a day trip.

Milk the fake cow .. Kids love it. It's expensive to go to but different . Not a zoo it's a working farm. Ask the workers to tell u about the place they are informative only if we asked. Springtime brings babies. Pigs sheep cows horse. It's a farm people. They have an inside museum too..

Very good experience. Charge is very reasonable $6 adults, $5 seniors, $4 juniors. A pleasant walk through a pasture. Corn growing to one side. Past a pig enclosure, mother and piglets stayed inside. Chickens and turkeys on display along with a very noisy rooster. Kids can milk a fake cow. Up to see real cows and sheep up close. Next... More

We finally visited the farm after living in the neighborhood for over 15 years. Should have done this earlier.

Former gentleman's working farm, lovingly maintained in the same spirit of the donor. Part of Morris County Park Commission's system. Not to be missed.

A wonderful day for young and old. Communing with nature, history and some wonderful people who want to see you have a wonderful day. The baby lambs, piglet and chicks where fun. And watching the young children learn about churning butter pumping water and washing clothes on a washboard was special. The beautifully maintained historical Farm is very special! Enjoy!

Good place to take children to see a working farm as it exited in the turn of the century. Many, various farm animals, out buildings, classic car and wagons. Hands on experiences.

A beautiful place to spend a relaxing few hours. A working farm with staff dressed in period clothing from the farm's early days helping to bring the place alive. They are all very helpful and there are great displays of how thing were done back in the early 1900's. There are plenty of farm animals to engage with and the... More
