My 5-year-old granddaughter loves to visit here. She enjoys the pony ride, feeding the animals and the playgrounds. She even likes the animated chickens.

We usually go to White Post Farms at least once every two years due to the amount of kids in our familiy. As we always have fun we always end up leaving and saying the same thing. What a ripoff for the price.
