Cows and sheep for the kids, a farmer's market for mom and dad – Where else to start your weekend under the sun?

Codman Community Farm is one of the few remaining live farms around Boston. This is a small, family-like operation where everybody can have fun: kids because they see farm animals, and parents because they can buy fresh vegetables at the tiny kiosk on Saturday.

Compared to nearby Drumlin Farm, this place is smaller, but the farm looks and feels really authentic. Among the animals that can be seen are pigs, rabbits, donkeys, sheep, cows and bees. You can also visit the grounds and check the gardens, which include a “Pick’ n Pay” section. Also check out Drumlin Farm.

Overall, a nice little place, very close to Boston, which is one of the best ways to start the weekend for the whole family!
