Since 1980 Adams Farm has been offering afternoon and evening traditional Vermont sleigh rides pulled by Belgian draft horses, through the maple sugar grove, up along the ridge of their mountain, to an old log cabin for a warm up by the wood stoves before coming back down the mountain. At the cabin, visitors warm up by the fire and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and some tunes from the player piano. Enjoy a game of checkers while you're there.Currently in the summer months the Adams Farm offers; scenic tractor pulled wagon rides around the property, Rainbow Trout fishing in our privately stocked pond, and horse-drawn wagon rides.

Have been on the sleighride several times in the past and have always had lots of fun! The Adams family is so friendly! Love the visit to the secluded cabin and hot chocolate treat. Perfect way to enjoy a winter's evening under the stars.

What a pleasant surprize this place was! I was looking for something to pass the time with my 3 year old grand daughter. She loves animals and decided to stop in when we saw the cows and horses from the road. Who knew they had a wonderful barn filled with animals to feed? Goats, pigs, cows, sheep, rabbits, donkeys, emus... More

Thank you for visiting our farm, and understanding the admission. Some other places have grants and other help from the state, while we do not so do need to charge the admission. We do also have our admission good for all day, which guests take more advantage of during the summer months when the animals are outside. We do hope... More

We were two families with kids visiting Adams Farm for the sleigh ride on a February afternoon. The scenic ride was very pretty and relaxing. The sleigh would stop along the way to allow the horses to rest, and our driver would educate us on aspects of the farm such as how they make maple syrup. Once at the log... More

The sleigh ride was a fun experience. The horses are beautiful. It was nice to visit a farm that goes back generations. We found the history very interesting. I wish them the best! We enjoyed the Polish sausage and breakfast sausage we bought there. I recommend buying their meats. They are lean and natural tasting without too much salt or... More

My husband and I did the private sleigh ride for two. We had an awesome time. Kip was very nice and told us about the generations of family that owned the farm and what they did to keep the farm running for all these years. We originally went horse back riding there back in October 2016. The one horse drawn... More

Great time on a warm day in February. The snow was melting but the staff manage to pull off the trip. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The log cabin was very unique. The horses were hugh, well mannered and beautiful. Would definitely do it again.

Thank you so much! Everyone was very nice, I was a little nervous since it was a sleigh ride at night and I've never heard of something like that before, and it was perfect place to do my promposal. The information that was given was super cool, not too much, not boring. The ride wasn't too long, not too short.... More

The young man who drove the team was very informative about the horses! Also very informative about the Maple tree grove and process of making maple syrup. He was interesting and answered all of our questions! A beautiful day, lightly snowing, truly Vermont winter weather! A fun afternoon!

Went to farm years ago and so sad to see how aged it looked. If going for a sleigh Ride it was great. Nice stop and hear the history and conversation, but you can see how difficult farming has become to survive. Keep having to change on how to make money. Grounds were weathered, store unkept. Go there with farm... More

Thank you for visiting our farm. Along with every generation doing something different to keep the farm going. During these transitions some other projects tend to fall by the wayside. Thank you for your comments, and we will continue on our improvements with what we do here as well as our improvements. We hope to see you again! More
