Summer Activities

The Mount Snow Valley is conveniently located in southern Vermont and is comprised of numerous towns and villages, each with their own unique personality. The area is home to an abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities, great shopping, farm to table dining, and an atmosphere that can only be found in the mountain villages of New England. But as Vermont’s closest attraction to the Northeast’s major metropolitan areas, you don’t have to drive far to feel like you’re far away.


Adams Family Farm

Adams Farm is a working seven-generation farm in southern Vermont, offering the public seasonal activities and agricultural experiences. Activities are always interactive, educational, humorous, and memorable. It’s part agriculture, part attraction, and always entertaining. Enjoy feeding the farm animals, goat milking, wagon rides, sleigh rides, paintball, along with many other seasonal special events.

Farm Animalsvisit the animals

Our animals are available for visiting throughout the year. During the summer months they can be found outside in their pens and pastures.

Take a scenic wagon ride, pulled by one of our antique John Deere Tractors, around the perimeter of the property. The ride travels through the maple sugar lot, to the trout pond, past the log cabin and back to the farm. A few stops are made along the way.

Summer animal visiting hours are Tues-Sun starting at 10am, with the last ticket being sold at 4pm.
