About Us

No matter where we live, we depend on agriculture for the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and many of the materials we use everyday. At Springdale Farm, visitors learn first-hand in a fun, interactive way how agriculture affects our everyday lives.

See a cow being milked by a laser-guided robot in the dairy barn or walk through the woodlot trails and simply enjoy nature. Depending on the season, enjoy the petting zoo with new born animals like lambs and piglets. Activities vary throughout the year so that there's always a new experience to enjoy! Whether you're planning a school field trip, family outing, Scout activity or a birthday party, Springdale Farm is a place that people of all ages love to visit!

Springdale Farm is a 200-acre public demonstration farm that is owned by Monroe County and operated by Heritage Christian Services, a non-sectarian human services agency that supports children and adults with developmental disabilities. The farm has been in operation since 1830, and today it provides unique demonstrations of modern agriculture. It also serves as a day program site for adults with special needs who help to take care of the animals, maintain the grounds of the farm and welcome more than 40,000 visitors each year.
