Drumlin Farm is a 232-acre magnet for Boston-area families with young children. It’s the headquarters of the Massachusetts Audubon Society as well as a “demonstration farm,” which means that the exhibits are built around what you might find on a typical New England farm: kitchen gardens, flower gardens, meadows, ponds, and, of course, lots of animals, including cows, pigs, horses, birds, and forest creatures.
Excellent kid-oriented demonstrations, discussions, and walks by teacher/naturalist guides are given daily.
NOTE: Picnicking is allowed in designated areas only; no dogs allowed. Special programming includes in-season sleigh rides and hayrides for $1 per person and maple sugaring from mid-February through March.
