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 the farmer's house, the top has an apartment occupied by today's on-site farmer. Special events are held periodically.

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 old stove and everything else used in a house of that era. Wonderful place for a day trip, especially with kids!

Our family was introduced to Fosterfields this year and we liked it so much we purchased a family membership so we would be sure to visit many times. The setting is beautiful, there is light hiking and you can get up close to the farm animals. The buildings on the property can be visited during special events and every program we attended has been entertaining and educational. Farmer Rob and his wife Julie are wonderful people who you should take the time to meet when you go. Fosterfields is a Morris County Gem!!

I got to this place accident while I was trying to find a friends home. This is located close to downtown Morristown, close to the green. It is a working farm and seems to be frequented by groups of school children as well as families. This would be a good place to go when it is not so busy. However, I dropped by during an 'off' day I guess, because there was not much going on. The demonstrations seem to be timed when they expect more people or groups of people to drop by. I always enjoy their demonstrations even when there is a crowd.
