It was Black Friday, and the temperature outside was about 60 degrees. We wanted to stay clear of the malls, so we decided to make the drive to Lincoln, MA to Drumlin Farm, one of the Mass Audubon properties.
My kids were most excited to see the animals, so we skipped the hiking trails (which take you to the top of the Drumlin) and went right to the farm area. Immediately, we saw birds, owls, and hawks. Then, further down the path, we saw sheep, goats, chicken, pigs, and a fox. We went on a hay ride (additional fee of $2/adult, $1/child), which both kids deemed their favorite part of the day.
Drumlin Farms also offers educational programs, a garden, and much more!
Drumlin Farm is great for families of all ages – the farm area is very accessible, although it does require some walking. We went after lunch, so we didn’t need to pack food. However, there is a dedicated picnic area if we’d chosen to pack a lunch. There’s also a farm stand and a gift shop.
