My kids love farm animals and zoos and sometimes just want to visit for a few minutes. That’s why we love the Natick Community Organic Farm – it’s free, and offers close encounters with a variety of different farm animals including goats, cows, pigs, and chickens.
The farm also has a basic farm stand with in-season, fresh farm produce including salad greens, asparagus, rhubarb, seedlings, and fresh picked eggs. Families can also choose to sign up for classes – but sign up early because they sell out in an instant!
Where: Natick Community Organic Farm
Cost: Free (fee for classes)
