We were in love the minute we drove up in front with all the beautiful flowers and animals all right there. We were greeted by the son, Jared, and was thrilled to meet Farmer Frank. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Miss Sherry until the next morning. It was worth the wait. She is charming, sweet and her food is to die for. Five star in my opinion. She is assisted by some lovely local young woman with the process and they were friendly and very efficient. Now for the chores as they call them, Jared is like the Pied Piper the girls were so happy to work along side of him each day to feed all of the animals. He was patient, informative and hysterically funny. The girls talked about him most of the way home until they fell blissfully off to sleep. Farmer Frank was wonderful and gave us a hayride our last morning. Their land and the views are breathtaking. He had us totally glued to the stories of his families history back to the Revolutionary War. I was moved thinking about it and love that he shares these tidbits and keeps the history alive. You can keep Disney we're heading back there next summer....... Betsy S.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience, Betsy! I love to cook and Farmer Frank loves to share our history just as much as you enjoy the food and stories, so we look forward to doing it again! I’ll have to tell Jared that he’s our very own Pied Piper, he’ll appreciate that.

Until next year,
Miss Sherry

Our family spent a weekend on the farm-milked cows, fed the deer, rabbits, dogs,
goats, pigs, kittens and calves. Chores were done twice a day-fabulous meals were
home cooked and served family style. We even gathered eggs and sorted them
into boxes for sale and farm use. Get your family out there and enjoy something besides
computers games and cell phones.

Hi Marc, thank you for taking the time to review! There’s so much out there to experience when we put our phones down, and I’m glad we were able to share some of that with your family.

All the best,
Miss Sherry

We took our 3 year old daughter this past weekend and we had a ball! There were tons of animals and lots of babies. Even at 3 my daughter was able to participate in "chores" which included feeding calves, goats, sheep, pigs, kittens, dogs and deer, milking a cow and collecting eggs in the chicken coop. Ms. Sherry is an amazing cook and all the meals we had were fantastic. Farmer Frank has great stories and had a lot of knowledge to share. Once he sees you are willing to pitch in and help he really goes the extra mile to make sure every member of the family has an amazing time. We will definitely be going back!

We had a fantastic time at Hull-O Farms, we booked it for our 22 month old boy but I think we enjoyed the experience as much as he did! The snowy and wet weather in April didn't matter, there was still so much fun to be had - feeding the pigs (and cute piglets), cows, sheep, deer, rabbits and collecting the eggs - the fun never ends!! We stayed at Rose Cottage which was wonderful, very comfortable. The breakfasts at the main house were delicious too, with fresh produce from the farm, we certainly didn't need much lunch! I would recommend the experience to any young families, our little boy still talks about it!! Thanks to everyone at the farm for making us feel so welcome. It's great to contribute to farm life, and to know that your money is being spent to keep the farm going.

Room Tip: Wifi only available in main house, Rose cottage doesn't have separate wifi so have to logon each...

My 11 year old granddaughter and I spent 3 amazing days at Hull-O Farms! Everything exceeded our expectations. We learned so much about farm life; we learned how to milk a cow and how to bottle feed a calf; we loved collecting eggs and feeding all the other animals; we enjoyed cuddling with the chicks and the kittens. The evening campfires with smores and a guitar player was so much fun! The food was delicious and everyone in the Hull family and on the staff was so friendly, helpful and accomodating. We loved our accomodations in the adorable 2 bedroom house situated between the deer and the horses with a breathtaking view of the valley. This was a very special experience that we will never forget! Thank you to everyone at Hull-O Farms.
