You are able to pet many of the animals. The animal selection at the time of our vist was your basic farm animals (Chickens, Cows, Ducks ect...)

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

Buildings were closed due to funding. Thought it would have been a good place to walk the trails, but the trails were overgrown. Walked a handicap trail. It was short, but cleared. Maybe at another time it would be a nice place to visit, but not today in May.

“Great Place to Visit”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The Stony Kill Farm is a great place to go. The baby sheep have just been born and they are out there baaaa-ing with their moms. The cows are out and the ducks are on the pond. The farm is a great place to walk during all seasons. I walk there in the winter months because the roads are paved and there is no ice or mud to fall on. Also, the fields are gorgeous and the animals are usually out even in winter. Across the street is the Muller Pond trail which is a nice loop through fields and around the pond. It takes about 15 minutes to walk the loop and it is not arduous. You can also see the barn for the farm across route 9D. If you take the turn onto Red Schoolhouse Road, there is a lot to park. Venture further down this road and see another lot on your left for another set of 2 trails around another pond. The walk will take you 40 minutes
