Review
 
Drumlin farm is an operating farm managed by the Massachusetts Audubon Society. At the farm, you will see cows, horses, sheep and goats, pigs, and poultry and well as crop fields. The farm is well spread out, with different buildings and areas for each animal.

In addition to seeing animals and a real farm environment, you can walk along several trails, the longest being the Drumlin Trail, that mostly extends southwest of the farm. To take the trail, walk past the farm after admission, and take the trail to your right.

Allow about 1.5 to 2 hours to tour the farm and have a walk in its surroundings.

There is another smaller farm in the area named Codman community farm. That farm has no entrance fee and operates a very small farmers market on Saturday morning..
