Come by the Wolcott Mill Farm Center to meet the cows, goats, sheep, pigs, horses, rabbits, geese, chickens and other animals who call our working farm home. Daily milking demonstrations are offered in the Dairy Barn. Visit the greenhouse and gardens or, when available, take a horse-drawn wagon ride through the crop fields.
Many of our animals live their whole lives at the farm, so you can visit them and watch them grow each time you stop by. Many animals are born at Wolcott Mill Farm and although births occur throughout the year, spring is the season when most farm babies are expected. Make sure to see if new babies and hatchlings have arrived since your last visit…if you are lucky, you might even see a live birth.
Do you like having your head scratched? So do our animals. Some of our goats and cows really enjoy a good pet. As you visit the farm, feel free to pet animals that approach you. Please be gentle and respectful to all the animals here at the farm center.
Please do not feed the animals. Our animals at the Wolcott Mill Metropark Farm Center are on controlled diets. Just like kids, animals thrive when they are fed only nutritious foods. They can’t have snacks all day.
