Cute farm to visit with younger kids! Our school does the 2nd grade field trip here and the kids love it. We went as a family too and toured the house, which was interesting. Fun for a day when it's not too hot out. The staff will tell you fun facts about the animals there, which the kids loved. Several... More

This is a very interesting visit for adults and children alike. There's something for every age. There are many volunteers dressed in period clothing that are happy to share their knowledge. Plenty of hands-on activities, like corn-shucking, animal feedings, grinding corn, etc. You really get a good sense of what life was like back then. You can visit any time... More

It's great to visit year round - adults or families. It's great to see history alive on this working 18th-early 19th century style farm. We go for all the special events, winter farmer's market, touring the houses, etc. Just a nice place to visit on a nice weather day

If you'd like to see new additions to the Farm - this is the time to visit ! Saturday 4/18/2015 was one of these days and visitors (from tiny kids to adults) were not disappointed. A bunch of little lambs with their mothers were basking in the afternoon sun. Later on dutifully marched "home" for some more meals before the... More

Once owned by General Joseph Warren Revere, grandson of Paul Revere, the farm was bought by Charles Foster in 1881 and eventually bequeath to the Morris County Park system in 1979 by Caroline Foster. Today it represents farm life from 1880-1930. It's interactive and especially enjoyed by kids who can churn butter, make cider, feed pigs, gather eggs and learn... More

Anyone would have a nice few hours. A lovely place to stroll, a very small working farm. A garden with various plantings. A few classic farm animals with new piglets and lambs and calves in Spring. Some educational events like milking cows. A few people dressed in period clothing from a century ago. A guided house tour and interpreters at... More

Foster Fields gives you a chance to step back in time and see first hand the life of some of the settlers of Morristown. Great history and hands on experience for the kids and adults. You can spend a couple hours or the day don't miss it.

I used to go to Howell farm (near Lambertville, NJ) a lot as a kid and was expecting much the same, but Fosterfields has even more to see! There seemed to be a lot going on for kids, and the staff did their best to keep everyone involved. I really liked going into one of the houses and seeing the... More
