We just got back from our stay at the Hull-O Farms. My kids (age 5 & 2) had a wonderful time. They thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of the animals and "helping" with the chores. The food served was plentiful for all & very accommodating for all family members (vegetarian & picky kids... all satisfied each & every meal). I was...

We took our 18 mo old boy to Hull-o Farms for a 3 day vacation, all the way from Texas. It was a memorable experience. He loved interacting with the animals (there are plenty to choose from) and the place itself is one of those that make you put away your cell phone (signal doesn't help either) and just enjoy...

The first thing my 7 year old daughter and 9 year old son said when they woke up the morning after we left Hull-o Farms was that they missed being on the farm and doing the chores. They loved milking the cow, bottle feeding the goats, calves and even lambs, feeding corn to the deer, and blades of grass and...

My 9 year old niece and I loved our weekend at Hull-O Farms. We loved the chores - we learned how to milk a cow, bottle-fed calves, goats and lambs, fed deer, pigs and bunnies, collected eggs from the hen house, and even helped direct cows into the barn for milking. My niece delighted in playing with the many farm...

A relaxing, quintessential farm stay is what we wanted, and that's what we got. WIth Howe Caverns and water park nearby, and fishing and farm animals on the premises (not to mention other kid guests) my son, nieces and nephews had plenty to keep themselves occupied. With Miss Cherie's delicious, bountiful, homecooked meals served twice a day, and with the...

We went to the farm eager to experience happy farm life. We did not know how strongly we felt about cows til we went and it ended up being pretty sad experience for us. We are still haunted by the memory of a very beautiful calf nuzzling us a hello, happy to be given a bottle by us. Then we...

My daughter wanted to combine a farm stay with our vacation this year, so in researching farms where you can actually stay and help with chores, we came across Hull-O-Farms in Durham, NY. This worked out well, since the first part of the vacation was spent at Niagra Falls, CN/NY. Our farm stay turned out to be a great educational...

We spent the past three days in the Catskills at Hullo Farms. I was looking for a short trip that would be a fun family experience, especially for my 4 year old. This did not disappoint. The house we stayed in was spotless. The temperature was extremely warm this weekend and the air conditions kept the sleeping areas very cool....

Friendly staff. Great food (albeit.., not farm made.., all catered). It was the filthiest farm I have ever seen in my life. Garbage everywhere. Trash everywhere. Animal feces everywhere. I understand this is a working farm.., but get a darn broom and clean up a little. Animals kept in plastic boxes. With chains around their necks that are rubbing them...
