  • Knowledgeable staff demonstrating what it meant to live on a remote island in the 19th century. People spinning yarn, shearing sheep, blacksmith making needed items. Kids will enjoy it, they can...

  • I absolutely LOVED my time at the Island Farm. Not only is it a fantastic representation of life on the island back then, but the people that worked there were absolutely wonderful and it felt like they were family. I got to make a cloth doll and it made my whole day. They have a bunch of cool animals on the farm and it’s a historical treat. Honestly a perfect time for everyone in the family. Can’t wait to visit again.
  • Very interesting tour on June 16, 2022. All 3 tour guides were very knowledgeable and explained how & when plants, animals, buildings, and a giant windmill were placed or built on the property. I got to rub the nose of a true "banker pony" (Rainbow) here, too!
