I love living history sites, but there was not much there when I visited. It looks like it could be a good place if there were more people in costume.

We love it here! This was our second time going and had another wonderful time...the volunteers are so helpful and informative & it's so great for the kids to not only see the animals but also to experiencing a true working farm. Highly recommend it!!

I am 73yr old and we had a family farm in Ohio run by relatives who were old fashioned and did everything the "old way". My visit to the Living History Farm was like a trip down memory lane. All of the old equipment has been very well taken care of and the buildings are in great condition. It was... More

We enjoyed our visit to the farm. The day we went they were sowing winter wheat and shoeing a horse. It was a weekday and there were several school groups so they had a number of volunteers teaching the children about different farm activities. We were able to listen in without being in the way and the farm is large... More

Visited farm after a trip on the old train in New Hope, PA. Took my daughter and two grandsons. People very freindly, Very clean, educational. Kids loved the farm. Kind of spread out, slight problem for people who have trouble walking. Also, no cost!

This is a working history farm, weekends they have activities on SAturdays for children. We've been there during sheep shearing, and the fiddlin on the farm event. This is a beautiful working farm. Great place to bring young children to get outdoors in the fall and early winter. We've done the wool fiber activity making butterlies, shuking corn, tasting homemade... More

Very nice farm to visit for adults or kids. A nice walk to buildings from visitor center. Free admission, plenty of parking, nice picnic area. Volunteers are very friendly and informative. Check web site for special programs and hours. Good for a couple of hours visit. Wear your older shoes, as it is a working farm. Nice gift shop with... More

Visited this place on a weekday but highly suggest visit on a weekend when everything is open. Since there were maybe 5 visitors that morning, around 10am, I was able to walk much slower pace and see everything close up. A very nice lady gave me a brief tour of the farmhouse with lots of little stories! Remember, this IS... More

Great experience for kids, from chopping wood to grinding corn to visiting animals and tapping maple trees to make syrup. Many food items cooked on site and are quite good- especially stews. A definite must on a Saturday (usually most organized activities are Saturdays, although you can occasionally catch a barn dance on a Friday night). Check their website for... More
