Welcome to Old McDonald's Farm!

Old McDonald’s Farm is closed for the winter- reopening May, 2024!

In 1986, “The Farmer’s Wife”, Nancy Robbins, founded Old McDonald’s Farm as a way to contribute to the family’s income while also being home with her then small children. Nancy, being raised in the city of Watertown herself, had a vision to provide an opportunity for the non-farming public to experience first-hand the joy of the country, animals and agriculture.Today, Old McDonald’s Farm has set the stage for an educational, agricultural, hands- on adventure for “kids” of all ages! At Old McDonald’s Farm, we take pleasure in providing kids and kids-at-heart with opportunities to learn about and have fun with agriculture. Old McDonald’s Farm is all hands-on, from feeding our huge cows, to petting and walking amongst dozens of goats, from touring our modern dairy’s calf facility, to visiting our special reindeer!

Included in your admission to Old McDonald’s Farm is a visit with over 200 farm animals, the all-new Scenic Storybook  Hayride, Reindeer Christmas Village, putting holes and lawn games, dozens of photo opps, farm “toys” for “kids” big & small, as well as sunflower fields in late summer, and corn mazes and pumpkin patch in the fall. In addition to visiting hundreds of friendly farm animals, we also have a full cafe and homemade ice cream, gift and souvenir shop, and fresh seasonal produce including our renowned sweet corn and homegrown strawberries.
