We didn't have time to tour the farm but we drove out to see the cows and parked along the side of the road to take pictures. I wish we'd been able to tour the farm and next time we will.

Loved the cows. We stopped in the gift shop and the gentleman told me that these cows have leaner meat, because in the winter they grow a second coat of hair instead of fat. The farm imported the breed from Scotland and has won awards...More

Very family orientated to visit cows and farm. It is historic and open to the public. There is usually a guide to inform you of the farm and souvenirs can be purchased.

While I understand there is a tour available, this is a drive by for our family. It's located on the "back road" from Rockport to Camden. The views over the farm and the famous "Oreo" cows are always a treat!

We stopped here on the way back from the botanical gardens. The cows are something to see. I had to google them because I never heard of the belted galloways before!

Like many we first discovered the belted cows for the visual effect of seeing them in the fields. But then we learned what great educational work and volunteer opportunities the Farm and the foundation behind it are providing, especially for kids. If you want your...More

We've been there many times and the staff are all welcoming and friendly. The farm sponsors 4-H kids and helps them with showing the cattle, which are in prime condition, having the utmost care.

Take Chestnut Street from between Camden National Bank and the Village Green and head over the hill and past the cemetery into Rockport and you will be at Aldemere Farm in about 2 miles.
