Coonamessett Farm Description
Get your hands (and knees) dirty while picking your own vegetables, herbs, berries, and flowers at this 20-acre farm. Then head to the petting zoo, where you can get up-close and personal with miniature sheep, donkeys, goats, chickens, ducks, and alpacas. If the kids are interested in a particular aspect of the farm, sign them up for one of the "Little Sprouts" farming and gardening classes. Each one features a different theme, complete with crafts, games, stories, and hands-on experiences.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Little Sprouts classes for 3- to 5-year-olds run from 10:15 to 11:45 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday (parental supervision required).
School-Age Kids: Little Sprouts for 5- to 10-year-olds run from 12:30 to 2:45 p.m. Children go on their own.
Pre-Teens & Teens: The farm offers classes in stewardship and biodiversity for older kids.
- Check the calendar. The farm offers a variety of programs that are fun for the whole family.
- Only members can pick and cut. You have to become a member ($40 and up) if you want to fill your gardening basket with goodies.
- End the afternoon on a sweet note. Stop at the farm's ice cream stand for a scoop or two. The café has a full breakfast and lunch menu.
