The Barnyard

Family Fun for All Ages

The Barnyard season is from Memorial Day Weekend through the last Sunday in October.

Retreat Petting Farm Brattleboro

The Barnyard is a great family destination for all ages. Feed and pet more than 50 animals on the farm and learn about these lovable creatures. Unique play areas round out the experience. 

Meet the Animals!

How would you like to hold a newly hatched chick? Feed a one ton oxen? Groom a miniature horse? Play with baby goats and lambs? Feed the piglets? Visit with the farmer? Drive toy trucks? And receive a kiss from a majestic llama! You can do that and much more at the Farm.



The Barnyard is located just outside of downtown Brattleboro, at 350 Linden Street, Brattleboro, Vermont. We are right on Route 30. Directions.


Our rustic 7,500 square foot barn provides comfort for animals and visitors, rain or shine.
