My family, including my baby that was under a year, LOVED this farm. It is adorable. I am a photographer and there are plenty of opportunities to capture some great pictures here. I don't know why people aren't saying this farm isn't fun or giving it a bad rap. First, IT'S FREE! You can't beat that. The animals are super nice and so is the staff. We had an hour talk with one of the guys who takes care of and feeds the animals. My daughter got to sit on a couple of the sheep. I would not spend a whole day here...maybe a few hours at the most, but it is a wonderful place to go.

Kline Creek Farm is an 1890's living history farm that has horses, cows, sheep, chickens, and pigs. Because they do not charge admission I have found it to be a great place to take the kids, and sometimes grandparents, when we just want to go somewhere. Their programs are great too (look online for programs and dates.) But don't plan on making a whole day out of it because it isn't on that kind of a scale (like Six Flags or the Museum of Science and Industry.) Although, they do have a picnic area if you want to bring a sack lunch. It's a great little farm right in our own backyard.

I bring my nephew and cousins here sometimes. It's ok, but I wouldn't plan on spending a whole day there because the kids get tired of ti quickly and it's pretty small. If you have a choice, go to Brookfield Zoo instead.

I have been to Kline Creek Farm a few times with my kids, and each time I go I always leave with a negative impression. It wasn't until recently that I figured out why, though...it's because it's not much fun if you don't go with a group of people (a class, a girl/boy scout troop, etc). It seems they concentrate more on the groups of kids, then they do on the smaller families that may visit. Maybe because it is more of a "learning farm" and it is easier to teach bigger groups...I'm not sure. I also would not recommend bringing small children (under age 3) as it would probably be somewhat boring - although I think older kids (4 or 5 years and up) would really enjoy it!

PROS: It is a great learning experience and fun to see how they did things
CONS: Not for small children or small groups.
