Children approach a stabled black horse

Park Commission logoThis Sunday, Feb. 4, from 12 noon to 4 p.m., take a fun, outdoor, family adventure to experience traditional farm life of the early 20th century at the Morris County Park Commission’s Fosterfields Living Historical Farm in Morris Township.

Climb aboard the open-air, tractor-pulled wagon for a ride around the farm; stop by the barnyard to meet the Jersey cows and other farm animals; learn about ice harvesting; and help with daily farm chores, such as sawing and working with wood.

Most importantly, break out of the cabin fever feeling a bit and enjoy the outdoors. And, don’t worry, if a chill gets you, take a break from the chill by visiting the cozy Farmhouse where seasonal foods are cooking on the wood-burning cook stove.

Also, you can stop by the Visitors Center to make a family-friendly craft, and check out the Transportation Exhibit to see Charles Foster’s Rockaway carriage and Caroline Foster’s Model ‘T’ Ford and Hupmobile. Be sure to try out all of the interactive displays.

Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors (65+), $6 for children ages 4-to-16, $4 for children ages 2 and 3, and FREE for children under age 2. Friends members are half price with a current membership card.
