Nestled in the hills of northeastern Pennsylvania, the Quiet Valley Farm has period-dressed "family" members reenacting the life of the original Pennsylvania German family who lived on the farm from the 1760s to 1913.
Quiet Valley hosts a number of special events throughout the year including Harvest Festival, Old Time Christmas and Farm Animal Frolic.
We recently attended "Farm Animal Frolic" at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm. It was awesome. We packed lunch and they had a nice area to picnic in the shade. The kids loved the animals. My kids are 12 years and 20 months and they both enjoyed themselves. Their was fresh baked bread and cookies. We spent about 4 hours there and would of stayed longer if it did not rain. Great place, reasonably priced. We will be attending next year.
i went here on july 3rd 2010 it cost us nearly $50 to get in, parking was very confusing, then when we finally parked and started heading towards the store area where you pay, a lady started ordering us to go in and pay, as if we were going to forget to pay?? the greeter had major attitude, the website says that they bake bread and that the customers can taste a piece of bread yet there wasnt any bread at all, when i finally asked about the bread the lady said we could have some but never did? other than a short tour of an old house, there was nothing else to see besides smelly horse and pig barns, this wasnt worth the time or effort to get there, i would have loved to ask for my hard earned money back!!!!!!!!!!! would enver go again, oh and last but not least i am vegetarian and love animals and they had a goat there that was tied up by the neck with a chain, in 90 degree temp. which to me is insane dont visit this place
Take a trip back in time at the Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm. Here your family will spend time with the Zeppers, a German immigrant family that settled this land back in 1765.
After a brief welcoming presentation, leave the present day and step back into the 1800s. In the 1763 cellar kitchen you will learn how food was prepared and how nothing was wasted on the farm. The farmhand will introduce you to the animals, demonstrate the farm equipment, and let your kids jump in the hayloft. Special demonstrations of various crafts and skills necessary to early life are held throughout the summer.
In addition to regular tours during the summer months, the museum also has a summer program for children, and special presentations, such as a Farm Animal Frolic in May, a Harvest Festival in October, and an Old Time Christmas celebration in December. Call for more information and specific dates. The Farm Animal Frolic is
especially recommended for small children, with baby bunnies, hatching chicks, piglets, lambs, and more for children to touch and learn about.
