Friendly farm animals are the big draw at the Maymont Farm, a popular destination for families and animal lovers. The area offers hands-on animal encounters and insight into farm life where children and adults alike are delighted by the crow of a rooster, the feel of a sheep’s wool and the nudge of a hungry goat. Look for feed machines on-site to purchase treats for your furry pals.
The original barn and pastures were completed in 1960, and the farm site was relocated in 1983 to accommodate larger facilities for the animals in a more accessible location for guests. Maymont was not a farm during the Dooleys’ time, but this well-loved corner of the estate now is a hub of activity and home to goats, sheep, chickens, domestic rabbits, donkeys, cows, pigs and horses. Surrounding the barn and pastures, guests enjoy open spaces for picnics and play time as well as a variety of gardens.
