This nostalgic park re-opened under new management for the 2017 Christmas season. The owners plan continued improvements through the winter and will open again in the spring of 2018. It is sure to be a favorite for families with young ones. It is a 10-15 minute drive from the campground.
How would you like to hold a newly hatched chick? Feed a one ton oxen? Play with baby goats and lambs? Feed the piglets? Visit with the farmer? Drive toy trucks? Play in the old silo? And receive a kiss from a majestic llama! You can do that and much more at the Farm. Children's forest too.

From the lower section of the West River Trail! In case you didn't know, the Friends of the West River Trail (FWRT) now has the right of way for the land from the old West River Railroad bed — from the parking area near the Marina in Brattleboro to the old quarry on Rice Farm Rd in Dummerston!
Great area to see birds like this blue heron.
