The Friendly Farm


With more than five acres of sprawling lawns, green pastures and well-maintained paddocks, The Friendly Farm is home to hundreds of critters. You'll find cows, horses, pigs, goats, sheep, ducks, chickens, geese, turkeys and more. We've even got a working beehive!

Serving tens of thousands of visitors every year since 1965, The Friendly Farm has become something of an institution. In fact, we ofte see parents and grandparents visiting, who first came as children.

The Friendly Farm has always been a family business. Founded by Allan Fox, the Farm is run today by Bruce Fox, the second generation.

I really enjoying going to the friendly farm, though I can't explain why very well. They have a ton of goats, and I adore goats to no end. Additionally, the employees are pleasant and will go out of their way to help you get all of the snuggles from every little animal roaming around. It's a fun place for all ages, and once a sheep(?) jumped over my wife while she was standing so that's pretty hardcore.

What a fun place! We took our 13-month-old daughter and the farmer let her help feed a month -old calf! Our whole family loved the variety of goats, and enjoyed holding the baby chicks, seeing the baby bunnies and interacting with one of the llamas. Walking around with the sheep was a real treat, though they did seem to be completely over socializing and scattered every time someone would get near. Maybe they were having a bad morning. I do recommend against buying any feed. The only creature that seemed to want the goat feed was the llama. You should definitely go and picnic - the grass is very short, the farm is very clean and there are picnic tables and a very fun hand-washing station.

The perfect place to go with your kids if you want them to learn about typical farm animals. We very much enjoyed our visit!

Many decades of eager and happy children have had access to this petting farm. Many families that travel or visit southern NH make it a traditional visit each summer. Open on a seasonal basis btwn Memorial and Labor Day, this well-known farm has seen several owners come and go but the smiling customer service remains the same!
